Fish Hook

I made myself a new fish hook today in between jobs, the shaft is carved from Ash & the barb is a bamboo skewer, but it could easily have been a thorn, piece of bone or even carved from a stick, it's whipped with linen thread, i had the end of a roll from my leather work, not enough for making a sheath or belt, but just enough for this.

I quite enjoy making these up, OK, I'll never use it for fishing with, but they are great to make when you have a spare 30 minutes or so.

For details on how this hook was made,  please check out this simple tutorial I've published, i still need to capture some extra detail on the whipping process, but if you study the photo's, it should make sense.
