Pocket Fishing Kit that Could Save your Life

Whether you are trying to catch something for dinner on a camping trip, or you find yourself stranded in the wilderness, fishing is a good way to ensure your survival. I recommend a tiny surival fishing kit that you can tuck away in a pack or a pocket. This is a an excellent compact fishing kit for your glovebox, backpack, or coat pocket. You only need the following things so you never go hungry in an emergency situation:

1. Small tin

2. Fishing line

3. Variety of hooks

4. Some fishing weights

5. A float or ‘bobber’

6. A nice stout stick

Take a look at the video here to see how to use these to make a fishing rod.
