          Appeal No. 1999-2361                                                        
          Application 08/410,496                                                      


                                   THE REJECTIONS                                     
               Claims 1, 2, 8, 16 and 17 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C.               
           103 as unpatentable over Turner.                                          
               Claims 3-6 and 11-14 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C.  103              
          as unpatentable over Turner in view of Panicci.                             
               Claims 7 and 15 were rejected in the final rejection                   
          under 35 U.S.C.  103 as unpatentable over Turner in view of                
          Panicci and Baker.                                                          
               With respect to the rejection based on Turner alone, the               
          examiner is of the opinion that it would have been obvious to               
          merely reverse the lure body of Turner, thereby rendering the               
          claimed subject matter of claims 1 and 8 prima facie obvious.               
               With respect to the rejection based on Turner in view of               
          Panicci, it is the examiner's opinion that Panicci shows the                
          claimed 90 degree twisted middle section.  Therefore, the                   
          examiner is of the view that it would have been obvious to                  
          make the twist of Turner of the specified 90 degrees.                       
                                       OPINION                                        
               We have carefully reviewed the rejections on appeal in                 
          light of the arguments of the appellant and the examiner.  As               
          a result of this review, it is our conclusion that the                      
                                          4
