  1. A few observations:
    1. That black thread will not hold any but the smallest fish. It will break as a fish of any decent size thrashes around after it's hooked. Instead, throw in some 10# or 12# monofilament fishing line, about 10-20 ft. (Learn to tie fishing knots, too.)
    2. If you make a fish hook out of wire, when the fish bites he will just bend it – and you will lose your fish.
    You might try fishing yourself – you'll learn enough to make some marked improvements in your survival fishing kit.

  2. Condoms are a great way to transport water and have ALOT of uses in the wild, not to mention do not take up alot of room in a B.O.B. alot of less room than a plastic water container!!

  3. thumbs up for safe sex while surviving!!!!

  12. or you can set up rocks in the creek all the way across leave a gap in the very middle.and if you have a net, set it up infront of the opening o the rocks and fish will habe to swim in there.

  14. @Wolky702 water storage

  15. PLEASE remove the writing from the video. I cant see a frickin thing you're doing ._. Therefore: Thumbs down.

  16. Would have been a nice video if you included the actual attempt. I'm not knocking you, just hoped to see the contraption in action. One of the concerns I had was if a large fish came along, wouldn't he just pull the whole rig downstream after he took the bait? And if so, what would you have done? Well shot video, great audio, well put together.

  17. @diddydawg11 It's just you
