  • About Kilo Lures (Arts and Crafts of Hawaii by Sir Peter Buck):"The cowrie shell (leho) gave its name to the lure, which was caled Leho He'e. The process of fishing by shaking it up and down was termed lu he'e. The cowrie lure was made primarily for fishing in water 80 to 120 fathoms deep, much too deep for the kilo method.The cowrie lure was a refinement of the stone lure, having on or two cowrie shells on the side opposite the stone sinker. In the museum collection there is a good deal of variation... The cowrie lure is composed of five parts: a wooden stem, a stone sinker, a cowrie shell, a hook, and a hackle (or tail) of ti leaves."
