Improvise a fish BBQ over a beach bonfire

Why is a coat hanger an indispensable tool in your dive kit? 

I never really been short of cooking supplies during my trips but the thought of trying that little trick appeals to me quite a bit.
Who has never thought about being as cool as Bear Grylls, eating raw mud crab or like MacGyver turning an old tractor into a perfectly capable flying machine with only a Swiss army knife and some old rope... 

Of course it's just day dreaming but still there are things that feel a bit like that and are pretty inventive! Cooking a fish over an open wood on the beach after a day of spearfishing, that's kinda cool :) 

Well look no further, this little trick explained by a man full of common sense will help you achieve a lot with very minimal supplies and tools!
