    I'm simply assuming there must be some invertebrates in the ecosystem to support fish.

    And here I'm assuming that the OP will make me stay on the island until i amuse him sufficiently with my attempts to catch a real fish.

    Catching fish is enough of a challenge as it is Chris! I would go Vegan, eat the Coconuts and drink the fresh water!

    I'd have a jog around in the flip flops for a couple of hours before lobbing 'em in the sea and gathering every gassed organism up within a fifty yard radius

    Day 2 on the island and the rock pool has yielded nothing, to be fair it needs a bit of modding with larger rocks so I will do more on it as I have all day, I wasn't expecting any results overnight and any fish or crabs could easily got out of one of the gaps. It needs a lot of work i'll probably bring a rock or two down each time I go for water.

    Living off of seaweed and coconuts isn't good neither was last nights lack of sleep so I'm collecting palm leaves to make a better shelter. There are fish out there but I am so tired.

    I think making a coconut bikini was a bit daft last night but what was left in that washed up rum bottle sure tasted good. I wonder now if doing a drunken hula dance in coconuts and palm fronds was some sort of racial stereotype but then again there's no pc brigade here to tell me so - suddenly it's doesn't seem such a bad place to be

    It wasn't too hard to solve the original problem ( Markg's home-made braid, Another Dave's gorge hook, half coconut method-feeder, crab boillie, shorts-cord hooklength)

    But the stone seatbox I made is too heavy to move and I need wheels to get it to the water

    I’d just wait for another AnglingDirect to open.

    I see The Artist is really getting into the spirit of it all, and is even thinking of extending his stay dressing up to attract erm... Merpeople?


    Some good ideas...

    #A gorge hook made from coconut shell shrapnel brilliant!

    #Weaving coconut fibres together to make fishing line
    You could have also used the fibres from the tee shirt if your knitting skills are poor like mine

    #Building a rock pool to catch small fish and crabs for bait

    #The flip flop lure to catch a tuna! brilliant (minus the superglue)

    #Float made from a washed up plastic bottle. Not necessary, but it could prove useful according to Sting if you eventually want rescuing.


    Assuming we used a piece of coconut on our fashioned gorge hook, or even a peeler crab caught from the rock pool as our bait.

    Right, so fish caught and in the imaginary bag... Raw or cooked?

    Having watched Naked and Afraid, just spare me from having to share the island with an American "alpha" male or American female who thinks she can out-alpha him.

    I have found rod, reel and line washed up on a beach and watching Bear Grylls island thing they found a whole fishing net once except they still couldn't catch a fish with it.
    I was assuming Laguana did not include beach debris or a knife, it was not in the list; how do you gouge out a hook from coconut shell without a knife?
