Today we’re going to be making little tiny micro hooks look at them and we’re going to be making them out of sewing needles really simple stay tuned to learn how Now, these don’t have barbs it’s going to be a little more difficult to catch a fish with it because it doesn’t have a barb it’s-you just have to keep tension the whole time um, but on the plus side this is much better for the actual fish because the barb won’t you know, destroy its mouth and it’s a fun challenge so I want to challenge people to build these hooks out of the needles and try and catch a fish themselves so let’s get started with the tutorial you’re gonna need needle nose pliers and another pair of needle nose pliers First, I take my needle nose pliers put it right on the tipy tip of this and this all depends on how small you want this hook to be but I’m showing you guys how to make the smallest one possible I put right on the tip and then I push it down like this ready? and I start to turn it inwards, like this you see how it’s angled now 90 degrees? You see that? [Erin] Mhmm. [Brendon] about 90 degrees and if it’s not try and get it to 90 degrees and then after that I hold on to the hook with a bigger pair and I’ll continue to wrap it like this against the actual pliers, just like that and I’ll twist it around just like that see that? you’ve gotta be careful not to go too much, it’s easy to go too much and then once you turn it look at that an offset hook right there but that’s the easy part making the hook is the easy part that’s a little one, you can make a bigger one by bringing it up a little bit more instead of, instead of having it straight at the tip right here bring it maybe a quarter inch up make that 90 degree and then once you have that 90 degree you wanna bring that tip you want to bring this tip to probably like right here there we go look at that one a lot of different variations you can make um, this one’s a little bit more rounded compared to like this square bottom right here i think the rounded ones would be a little bit better um, okay now let me show you how I make the eye this part First with these specific ones I can just crush the ball off and the ball will come right off See? Then this is the difficult part This is what I have the most trouble with, is how do I make this eye? Do you wrap it around like this one? Look at that Should I wrap it around? Should I just make a little standard loop like this? Or will that not hold? But then I realized that I’m catching little, small fish on this I don’t need it to be that strong a wrap is almost unnecessary so I can just do a little loop and I do that in a really similar way where I pinch it and then I roll it I roll it around like that you see that? There we go! Really simple I hope I’m giving you guys some ideas here again, this is not the only way to do it, this is my my $1 DIY way to do it so experiment with different ways I think this one would work pretty well um, now, okay for this small one for the small one you don’t necessarily need the shank to be that long so I’m going to crush this ball again the ball comes right off like, if you made-if you made the the loop right here That doesn’t look right, right? You see how long the shank is? and then the loop? So what you have to do with this is cut it off give it a little bit of distance so that it can make the loop and then make the loop ready? I put my finger on this and I turn it there we go look at that little hook Now you don’t want-you don’t want a gap between the eye right there so you’re gonna have to wanna– you’re gonna wanna tighten that a little bit and just give a pinch with the other pliers there you go and there you have it home made hooks right here There you have it, super simple to make, right? I wanted to give you guys this idea, maybe it’ll inspire someone to try it themselves and take the adventure for themselves um, theses su–these little hooks are really easy to make and it’s–it’s very rewarding to make your own hooks and catch a fish with your own hook um, that’s what I got out of the experience if you guys try it yourself let us know how it works have you done this before? Is there a better way to do this? How can I get a barb on here? Can anyone answer me that?
