Survival Fishing Kit that fits into a small survival tin


Survival Fishing Kit


The four basic priorities of survival are as follows:

  • 1. Fire
  • 2. Water
  • 3. Shelter
  • 4. Food

Priorities 1, 2 and 3 are pretty easy to pack for in any get home or bug out bag. However...Food can be a little trickier. Expiration dates, physical space restraints and other factors come into play here.

This is where a solid Survival Fishing Kit can be a great addition to your bag. A small survival fishing kit like the one I'm about to show you is easy to carry in a clothing pocket or any type of bag. And the best part is, it has the capability of catching much larger food than you could carry in your bag (and it can keep producing food for you long-term).

Why carry a Survival Fishing Kit?


I have made it a habit to carry a small survival fishing kit in my bag this entire year. This certainly could come in handy for securing food if I find myself in a survival situation. But, let's just talk everyday life for a moment...

Have you ever been out and found that perfect fishing hole, only to remember you don't have your fishing gear with you? Yeah me too, it's frustrating...I've been there many times before I started carrying a small fishing kit that can double as a survival fishing kit with me.

I, now, love having peace of mind that I can fish in any creek or pond as I come upon it. This fishing kit is such a lightweight addition to my overall kit that I don't even remember I have it with me. That is, of course, until I see some water and have time to make a few casts.

How To Use a Survival Fishing Kit


An EDC or Survival Fishing Kit is honestly one of the simplest forms of fishing out there. We'll have to do a full-length segment on using your fishing kit some day, but here's a quick overview below...

    • 1. Pick out your preferred fishing kit here.
    • 2. String up your hand caster card:
      I prefer using braided fishing line for my survival fishing kit (see my favorite line here). It casts easier and farther than monofilament since it doesn't hold the shape of what it has been spooled onto. You can also use braided fishing line for traps, sewing repairs, etc.
    • 3. Attach your weights, lures & fishing hooks to the end of the line.
    • 4. Unstring a couple of yards of line and throw your lure/hook(s) into the water as far as you can.
    • 5. Gently pull the line back to you (in a motion that resembles the "tug of war" game). Be careful to manage your line as you pull it back so it doesn't get tangled.
    • 6. If you get a bite, be patient until the fish fully commits to your lure. Then lift your line above your head and pull back to set the hook.
    • 7. After that, hopefully you have a fish. If not, cast until you do.
    • 8. When you do catch something...Simply clean your fish, make a fire and cook over the coals.

    The process of using a survival fishing kit is very simple, highly enjoyable and could certainly provide for you in a survival situation.
