Introduction: How to Make a Simple Survival Fishing Rig
I am posting this instructable in celebration of having got 2000 views on all my tutorials. In this instructable I will be showing you how to make a basic fishing rig which could be made in a survival situation as the hook is made out of a pin. I hope everyone enjoys this and that you all catch plenty of fish with it
Step 1: Materials
For this instructable you will need some strong fishing line (i'm using about 20 lb line), a pair of needle nosed pliers, a pair of scissors, some pins and preferably some hot glue (not shown here).
Step 2: The Hook
Put the pin in the pliers then gently bend it round as shown until it is a basic hook shape.
Step 3: The Hook
It should now look something like this.
Step 4: The Line
Take the fishing line and make a single knot in it as shown.
Step 5: Attaching the Hook
Slip the knot over the hook and pull it tight. Although it doesn't look like it hold well, I find this design to be quick and reliable especially if you put a dab of hot glue on the join (not shown here).
Step 6: Knot
Now tie a tight loop knot on the other and of the line: this will then be tied onto your main line.
Step 7: Wrap It Up
Sorry this is not as clear as my usual pictures but what I have done it just wrapped the whole thing around itself to make it easier to carry. As always, hope everyone enjoyed this instructable and I think this is quite a good time to post it as earlier today I used this setup to catch 4 1lb fish :)
The reason I have been so brief with this one is because i have had to post the whole thing in an internet cafe charging crazy rates.
