Primitive Skills: Fishing a big fish in a pond with a self-forged fishing hook, Results after 1 year
Welcome to the next video episode! Happy New Year. Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy and successful new year Starting a new day, I clean the smithy area Today I will operate my smithy to forge iron I have left the smithy unused for a long time You must be wondering why I don't use the water wheel to push the piston, right? For the reason I forge small tools, the tool will be blown hot quickly so there is no need to use the water wheel to push the piston Follow through your screen my work My smithy is still in good working order Constantly beating to make this iron bar small Your prediction, what tool will I forge today Chicks come to where I'm working Play with the chicks for a bit The chicks are growing up day by day, they were tamed from a young age so now they are not afraid of me I usually feed them in the palm of my hand so they already have a habit when I reach out my hand I continue my iron work After the iron was forged to the required size, I began to bend it I proceeded to cut it out, once I had bent it to the required shape Do you recognize this tool? A fishing hook that I successfully forged The tip of the hook is quite long, I will cut it down a bit You probably know the reason why I forge the hook, right? I will catch fish in my pond with a hook I forge Some of you have told me, why don't I bring fish to the market? I will think again today haha I have to finish my fishing hook first The second fishing hook With manual forging technology, I will heat the hooks and soak them in cold water so that they have a certain hardness for the hook. Then I took the hook and sharpened it with a whetstone The tip of the hook needs to be sharpened and pointed Polish the edges around the fishing hook with a whetstone The fishing hook has been completed as planned I will use this small bamboo branch as a fishing rod Bamboo is also used as a very rich fishing rod This bamboo fishing rod must be said to be wonderful Next will be the fishing line These are ropes harvested from tree bark Very sure I have grown these plants in my garden before and harvested them for their bark Now I will use the basic manipulations to knit these ropes Before knitting into a long thread, I have to test with the hook to see if it fits the hook or not These are the yarns that are separated in preparation for knitting In order to have a long rope, I need to connect them together in this way of mine I spotted something on a tree branch Move closer to take a closer look Looking through your screen, do you recognize what it is? I climbed the tree to take a closer look It's a swarm of bees clinging to a tree branch In my head right now, I have an interesting idea Prepare saws and ropes Bring a saw and rope and climb the tree Tie a rope to the branch that the bees are clinging to to hold on Start sawing off unnecessary small branches I need to be very careful so that the bees don't fall A strong impact and vibration on the branch will cause the bees to fall Oh no! I was a little too strong, half of the bees have fallen Once again the remaining bees clinging to the fallen branches have all Now I will pick up the bees from the fish pond When the bees are clinging to each other on the tree branch, a strong impact makes them suddenly not able to take off and they will fall down as you just saw. A game that is too risky you should not try, or you will receive consequences I got stung by quite a few bees on my hands and on my neck The shirt that I wear is now a home for the bees Find a place to make a shelter for the bees I will use this old smithy pipe as a home for the bees Seal the two ends This hole will be the entrance for the bees Start very gently to get these bees into the wooden crate I successfully put the bees in the crate and got my shirt back My aim is to raise them on my farm and hope they stay with me Continue to return to the main work of today The rope is done now I will tie one end to my fishing hook The other end of the line will be tied to the fishing rod The rice has been ground since early morning, now I will take it out The bees have stayed in the wooden crate I prepared, hope they don't leave Get banana leaves for fish Before feeding the fish, I will ring the bell as usual to call the fish Because of the cold winter, when I ring the bell the fish won't come to the surface like before and you won't see the fish Feed them rice flour There are many different types of fish in the pond Like carp, fish suddenly... Tie a small log as a buoy to track the fish underwater when the fish bites the hook Roll banana leaves into the hook to make bait Start fishing, hope I will succeed and catch fish The fishing style looks a lot like a professional angler The way to use banana leaves as bait didn't work I will do it this way, the hook will be hooked to a leaf Hopefully this time I will succeed Fishing also requires you to have perseverance Rub! The fish caught the hook which startled me, it almost dragged me into the pond haha The fish is very big so it is very strong The fish is already tired, I can bring it up This fish I caught before from the stream to raise in the pond, before it was small and now it is this big. Of course they will grow up fast because I work hard to feed them regularly There will be two choices: 1 will bring the fish to sell and 2 will leave the fish to serve my daily meals There are quite a few unshelled seeds, I have to sort them out After many screenings and still can't get rid of the unshelled seeds, I will pick them up again Start washing the rice to cook for dinner It's almost dark, I'll drive the chickens into the coop I decided to leave the fish for my meal Conduct fish processing I didn't shoot a dinner video quite a while ago Hope you enjoy this video The fish I will make grilled fish Dividing the fish in half for grilling will cook faster The fish head will be cooked with mustard greens Prepare to have a delicious dinner Tonight I will eat half of the fish and the other half I will save for the next meal I invite you, I was so hungry Excellent, the fish meat is delicious My video is quite long and will end here Thank you for watching this video. See you in the next video episodes!
