In survival situations and times of crisis a fish hook can come in handy, especially if you ever get lost in a forest and got to fish for your food. With this very cool trick you can turn a can tab into a fishing hook in less than ten minutes.
The tools you’ll need should be a part of your survival kit. To make the hook you’ll need: a can tab, file and wire cutter.
First of all, you will need to cut an opening in the can tab, so you can start shaping your hook afterwards. Cut around the hook closely, so you remove all the metal and then use the file to shape the hook and make it really sharp. Be careful not to hurt yourself in the process.
After that check the back of the hook and make sure it is the top of the tab can is intact, as you will need to tie the line here so you can start finishing. In the end you will have a very useful tool, which will prove to be really helpful in situations of emergency.
