Knowing how to make a fish hook in a pinch is a good skill to have. At the end of the day, you don't need a fancy fishing rod to catch a fish.
You need a hook, some bait, and string.
If you don't have fishing line, you can improvise by using foliage, removing threads from your clothing, or using paracord.
How to make fish hook zipper in 3 simple steps
First, break the loop of your zipper
The first step is breaking the loop of your zipper.
Then bend the zipper so it's at a 90-degree angle.
You can do this by threading some rope through the hole and forcefully busting it, or you can use a hard surface to break it off. The metal is very thin where you need to break it.
Sharpen the hook
Once you've bent the end of your zipper, you need to sharpen it so you can attach bait and snag a fish.
Use a rock to sharpen the metal until it can easily puncture clothing (like an actual hook).
Now use your string or paracord and tie a knot around the backside of the zipper.
Once you've completed your DIY fishing hook zipper, it's time to forage for insects and a long stick.
