Step 1: Clipping Off Extra

So what you first want to do is cut off the middle part of the soda cap. You will have just one part left that looks like a hook. You can use a needle nose pliar for this. See in the picture:

Step 2: Sharpening the Hook

Has this been easy so far? Well it's about to get easier! All you have to do to make the sharp part of the hook is use a needle nose pliar to bring it all together to form a sharp end.

    Good idea, but could you also show how you would tie the hook to your fishing line?

    Similar, using a multi tool, cut from one side, fold top in half, bend remaining into hook, run line between fold, wrap at thin part and finish off. Works for turtles, frogs, bluegill, crappie, and perch.add a bug or additional tab to flavor it or make it flash.

    I have done this in the past, look at making the top of your hook smaller, and it will be easier to catch something, rather than only monsters. further you can use another pop tab as a spinner or spoon, and a strand of 550 cord guts, run through the spinner, and tied to the head of the hook. this tied to the end of you hiking stick or pop bottle make a decent rig.
