Survival spear fishing: cooking fish in bamboo

You can steam fish in bamboo. Just add a bit of water and leave it until it's done. This tastes better than boiled fish. There is quite a bit of moisture in the fish and this helps cook it.

These two fish (Barbs) were speared in a nearby stream by our Thai ranger friend. He had a home-made Hawaiian sling that was basically a sharpened steel rod and a bunch of regular rubber bands tied together.
