Introduction: Pop Can Tab Hook

About: Prepper, gamer, maker, biker, photographer. Expect to find weapons, and prepping tutorials.

In this instructable I will show you a way to make survival fishing hooks using household items and very basic tools.

Step 1: Gather the Things You Need

For this method of making a hook you will need the following things:

Tools: wire cutters and/or scissors, knife/thumbtack, optional: marker

Materials: pop can tab

Step 2: Mark It

Mark where you want to cut with your marker/pen. The steeper the angle on the bottom right the sharper the hook.

Step 3: Cut It

Using your wire cutters cut on the lines that you drew earlier.

Step 4: Poke a Hole

Using your knife/thumbtack poke a hole in the top of the hook. This hole is for the line to go through.

Step 5: You’re Done!

Congratulations you have successfully made a fishing hook! Let me know what you thought in the comments below.

    Since the hook isn’t very heavy in my experience you won’t be able to cast it very far without a sinker or two

    It is a survival tip )

    That's a neat way to make your own :)
