Step 1: Gather the Materials
-A section of thorny brush. The thorns from a bush or another type of plant will be the hook part of your fishhook. I used a section from a rose bush.
-A bit of thin cordage. The cordage will lash and keep your hook together. I used some basic thread for this. In a real survival situation you could make the cordage from dried nettle fibers.
-Some adhesive. The adhesive will aid in keeping the hook together. Some rubber cement will do, but in a survival situation where rubber cement isn't present, pine resin should be used. You can find out how to make pine resin here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Natural-Glue/
-A feather. The center of the feather will be used as the structure and for the eye of your hook. The feather needs to be big enough to be split by a knife, the bigger the core the easier it is to work with. I used a couple varieties I found at the beach.
-A knife. The feather will need to be shaved and split, so a knife is needed. I used a standard Swiss knife.
-*OPTIONAL* A roll of aluminum foil. Some parts of this can be messy, so the foil protects your surfaces.
-*OPTIONAL* A pair of scissors. Scissors can help with trimming and cutting the cordage. A knife could do all of the things scissors can, but some things a bit more difficult.
-*OPTIONAL* Some Q-Tips. Q-Tips make spreading the adhesive easier.
