Some off you know I'm a big fan of hillbilly genius, well this guy got my attention. Plus as some one who enjoys walking off into the woods with nothing but my knife, this is top notch survival chit

my comment is simple... I can afford hooks.. not elite hooks, but not ones made of thorns.

As a southerner I'm embarrassed. Everyone knows there's a Walmart you can shoplift eagle claws from a block away.
1: the point is self reliance meaning lack of hooks
2: knowing the root that can be made into a hopper imitation :)
3: would seem like one of the starting points of our sport --- think about it

And one more time, y'all call me an elitist?
I was really hoping y'all would look deeper than the ex-hobo and see the simplicity behind it,

Oh well guess I'm just a sucker for ingenuity

I was wondering where the blue stuff on his fingers came from too. Didn't look too particularly healthy either.

I'm still fascinated by the easiest written about flies with the two waxy feathers from the turkey neck and a bit of red wool... Anybody read the article a few issues back in Fly Tyer with the old school patterns tied on hooks you had to build your own leaders for ( hooks were eye less )? Patterns called for materials from the farm, field, and barnyard. Classic flies.

Took my boy on a bike ride to the lake about five years ago. We arrived at a dock where a few siblings were fishing, but doing poorly. My boy found a crappie jig lead-head. I found some duck flank feathers, and lots of liter line on the ground. I tied up a minnow pattern with it, put the liter line on a stick from the willow by the dock, and caught about 6 or 7 blue gills.

He still talks about it to this day. He just brought it up at a dinner party two nights ago.

I guess I'm a redneck. That works for me.

Pretty cool stuff. I'm a huge fan of survival stuff like that. He is taking a lot of grief in the comments for never using the stuff to actually catch a fish on video, but I bet I could make a fish eat that even on twine. Thanks for the link.

It's also interesting to think that if somehow we all went back in time and lost our modern fishing rods, reels, and lines, none of us would be able to catch fish even though we are "experts".

Anyone ever hand caught a trout? It isn't easy but doable. Trout noodlin!
Yes I have...many times as a kid. Grew up on Monument Lake and would reach under the cut banks and catch trout and suckers in the stream entering the lake ...
