This step you slide the string through the little hoop on the last or 4th paper clip. You tie a knot to the paper clip. Then put the nail on the opposite end of the string and wrap it on and tape it.

i agree!
you cant fish with one-a those maybe if you got way lucky you could hook afish but it would slide off. theirs no barb
you dont need barb u just have to sharpen it
what keeps the fish on the hook then?
your good tug
when the fish bites the hook it starts to go away from you then the hook will still stay on the fish
if u but bait on it they swallow it being the dumb fish they are and you pull it up having it hooked hopefull on the lip or on the mouth somewhere
