I have some small nails in my pocket from a recent ikea build. you all ways end up with some spare bits!
Anyway I decided to make some small fishing hooks.
This reminded me of a time when I was on a long flight. As a little challenge and to pass the time I decided to try and improvise some hooks from what I could find on the plane.
I ended up making quite a few from different things which I then used when I got to my destination.
Survival is all about improvisation.
Man made or natural materials are all fair game.
I ended up using a safety pin which I found on the floor of the toilets. I also attached a lure made from brightly coloured plastic sweet wrappers. I bound the hook with thread and waterproofed it with a wax crayon. I also found paperclips, which I think are a bit weak metal. The pull from a drinks can, pin from sowing kits and loads more.
Try it out its good fun. Make a hook from what's within 5 metres of you right now.
