Anyone know what this is?

I'm not sure if this is something my grandfather put together or if this is something that was commercially available at one point but I found it at the bottom of his tackle box and I'm intrigued by it.

If it looks commercially made, I'll be it is worth some $$$.

If it was home-made, I'd imagine it would catch some fish.

I don't know where I'm coming up with this, but seems like I saw something a long long time ago like that, where you can string a dead fish on it and fish it like a lure.

I've seen saltwater rigs like like for fishing salted eel skins. They'd sell or eat the eels, but 1st peeling back the skin and then preserving it in a salt brine. Then bring it up over the hook and tie it in with thread into that groove.

Small post on them here: https://www.shorelinebt.com/id62.html

See other vintage examples below.
