-The original ​of this trick, in which a selected card is magically fished from a hat or bag on a piece of ribbon or rope, is Stuart Robson'​s ​"The Card Angler"​ in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​15725/​Jinx+No+035/​1|The Jinx]]//, No. 35, Aug. 1937, p. 233. In Germany, Werry Geissler put out a version called "​Schlangenseil"​ in 1954. While Robson used tape to attach the card, Werry had the card already tied to a piece of rope in the hat which was then attached ​to the bigger rope with a magnet, ​so for the spectators ​the rope knotted ​itself around the card and doesn'​t ​just stick to it.+The originator ​of this effect, in which a selected card is magically fished from a hat or bag on a piece of ribbon or rope, is Stuart Robson. His "The Card Angler" ​appeared ​in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​15725/​Jinx+No+035/​1|The Jinx]]//, No. 35, Aug. 1937, p. 233. In Germany, Werry Geissler put out a version called "​Schlangenseil"​ in 1954. While Robson used sticky ​tape to attach the card to the rope, Werry had the card already tied to a short piece of rope in the hatwhich was then secretly ​attached ​by a magnet ​to a longer rope. In this version by Werry, the rope appeared to knot itself ​magically ​around the card rather than just sticking ​to it.
