I just came across this, used in guatemala for Sailfish releases. Brilliantly simple. If there is a bite-off, or not a clean release leaving both hooks in different jaws, the upper hook will just slide off, allowing the fish to feed till it eventually comes out. Upper hook is kept tight to line with a rubber band. (id rather crimp than snell the bottom)
