OPOCHTLI

Aztec Hunting God

God of Bird Snaring, Hunting and Fishing

He supplies all the tools necessary for catching meat and fish. He is also left-handed, the only instance of a left-handed God we know of (so far!).

So if you don’t catch that massive fish, you could always fall back on the excuse of being forced to use a left-handed fish hook.
