The spiller was a type of long-line which was commonly used by Irish sea-fishermen for catching cod, skate, ling and other fish. The hooks were attached to the main-line by means of shorter lines and were usually baited with lug-worms. The baiting was often done in the house, andthe long-line was then carried to the boat in the spiller-basket, which is included in this photograph.
