To Catch a Large Fish – Cherokee Shaman’s Charm
To have an abundant and large catch, the fisherman must chew a small piece of Venus flytrap and spit it upon the bait and also upon the hook. Then, standing facing the stream, place the bait upon the hook while reciting: Listen! Now you settlements have drawn near to hearken. Where you have gathered in the foam you are moving about as one. You Blue Cat and the others, I have come to offer you freely the white food. Let the paths from every direction recognize each other. Our spittle shall be in agreement. Let them be together as we go about. The fish have become a prey and there shall be no loneliness. Your spittle has become agreeable. I am called Swimmer. Yû! He will be able to pull out a fish at once, or if the fish are not about at the moment, they will come in a very short time.

Back in the day witch balls were hung in cottage windows in 17th and 18th century England to ward off evil spirits, witches, evil spells, ill fortune and bad spirits. The hardest part is acquiring a pair of witch balls.
