Campfire fish cooking in bamboo

The plant that I most appreciate having in the jungle has got to be bamboo.  Not only can you build a complete shelter with it, you can use it directly for cooking.  Here, we're steaming a fish in bamboo and at the same time boiling drinking water in another piece of bamboo. 

We use a leaf plug on top of the piece of bamboo that is steaming the fish. This both retains the water (steam) that is trying to escape and this particular leaf adds a bit of flavor to the fish. Water soluble nutrients would escape with the steam, so in a true survival situation it makes sense to drink some of the water that was used in cooking the fish.

Your post is very helpful, thank you. Fishing is a sport that appeals to the adventurous, but also to those who love to spend time outdoors while enjoying a relaxing pastime. As evidence of the popularity of fishing, in 2011, anglers paid upward of $41 billion in recreational fishing expenditures. Additionally, in 2014, there were as many as 50 million fishers in the United States alone. See more http://survival-mastery.com/skills/scouting/how-to-fish.html
