A good fishing kit should always be a part of your survival gear. It will afford you an additional opportunity to procure food. Most of the better, ready-made survival fishing kits are the mil-spec versions. This is my personal survival fishing kit and is a Mil-Spec F-6218C. It was originally assembled in May of 1993 and is close to 20 years old. It is better shape than some of my current fishing gear and contains a high quality assortment of fishing gear.
Here is a picture of the contents of my survival fishing kit. The total weight of the kit is slightly more than 6 ounces. The penny was added as a size reference.
Here is a list of the contents of my survival fishing kit. All of the items fit neatly into the metal container which is sealed with 100 mph tape and kept in a separate water-proof container.
The kit also includes fishing instructions under survival conditions and a knot card with basic instructions for tying a variety of knots.
A PDF version of the survival fishing instructions is available here:
Grasshoppers and worms not included.
In a survival situation, it never hurts to do a little fishing while you are...
Staying above the water line!
