Introduction: How to Make a Simple Fishing Lure With Office Materials in Under 5 Minutes!!!

About: i'm dan and i like making stuff... i'll try to post some of my idea's up to share them with the world, i hope you find my instructibles usefull!

bored? fish? i've got a solution, make some fishing lures!

what you need:
-paper clip
-tape (i used electrical tape)
-sissors (something to cut the tape)
-pen with a rubber grip
-fishing hook (one shown works best)
*** if you don't have a hook, check dicks sporting goods, walmart, meijer, etc. you can get several for cheap!

*** haven't used it yet, but i'll post an update if i catch anything...

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Taking Off the Gripp

unscrew the tip of the pen, then twist/ turn the grip off. the grip can be difficult to take off depending on what pen you use. *** you still can use the pen by placing the tip back on, it just won't have a grip

Step 2: Attaching the Hook/ Rubber

bend the paper clip so it's open as shown, take and slip the hook through and to the bottom of the clip. close the paper clip the best you can, then tape it a few times around, this will make it stronger, and help the rubber from slipping. slide the rubber on, allow enough room at the top of the clip to tie.

Step 3: FINISHED!

this is just a general idea of how it should look. can't wait to try it, don't care if it works or not, it was FREE!!!

good luck fishing!!!

No fish would ever take that. It has no special movement, raddle, or even color. Somethings you just gotta buy to be effective. :( sorry!

LOL does she argue that regular single hooks are NOT inhumane? Fishing in general could probably be considered inhumane, but i love it so much, and fish taste SO GOOD! mmmmmmm! I think the walleye are a-callin' my name!

yes, she says that certain animals were put on this earth by god to be eaten, she also says that it has 3 times as many opprotunities to hook yourself, and walleye are really fun to fish for.

Animals were put on this earth for the use of Man. I agree with being kind to animals, but some people go to far. Did you hear about PETA getting angry at Obama for killing a fly in his office?

for all that care fish arnt animals lol an walleyes a sports fsh not much for eeatting to oily , an yes three hooks with barbs the barbs can be crimpped down less inhumain but as far as that goes studies have showen that one a fish is hooked nomatter how humain you are about it if you releases it ,it will only live up to three months longer befor the infection sets in deep enogh an it dies any way , but as man goes if we dont practic at fishing an it wasnt a sport lots of things we now know would never have to become . as studies are sponned from actions so if your caught between a rock an a hard spot on all this try fishing in a rowboat lol

Just to let you know fish are animals :P and pcurl1 is right it depends on how and where you hook them.

Wrong about the three months thing. There are documented cases of a single fish living to be 20 years old or more and being caught and released multiple times over its life.
Usually, they don't die, but it depends on how you hook 'em. If you rip half their guts out, thats another story.
