Today I decided to so something more in the realm of “traditional survival skills” or the more typical “wilderness survival skills” that many popular survival shows are based on. Today we discuss assembling both a very basic bare bones fishing kit and a more advanced better equipped version with complete survival fishing gear included.

Tune in today to hear…

  • Why caring a fishing kit makes so much sense
  • Can you find fish anywhere, well as long as you can find reasonable water supplies, yes
  • Why you need an air/water tight container for your tackle
  • Advice on hook sizes
  • How to make a “frog gig” using large hooks
  • How the spin fishermen can effectively use even the tiniest of dry flys
  • How to find bait in survival situations
  • Bait or food, the choice is yours, a new version of “a bird in the hand”
  • How to make a “hobo reel”
  • Advice on a collapsible fishing rod, get one, carry it, it beats a hobo reel or improvised can pool
  • Why you should carry netting
  • Minnow soup? It might be “what’s for dinner”
  • Advice on carrying more fishing line then you think you will need
