Fishing like other trades has words associated with the work. Blackies are Black Fish Tackies are Yellow Tuna. Lobbies are Lobsters. A 'looped Paternoster' is a special knot and loop with beads and hooks. Originally Paternoster was a loop of beads on the Rosary to mean 'Our Father'. No doubt fisherman used it in the trade because they often pray for a good catch.
