The DIY Survival Fishing Kit
Having food stockpiled is obviously the best method of ensuring you have food in an emergency situation. Have you thought about what would you do if you got stranded away from your home or your home is destroyed?
I know I have and being a city man and not being skilled at hunting I fear that food for my family and myself may be hard to come by. SO, I went hunting on the internet to see what easier methods there are to catch food. The one that came to the front of the rest was fishing.
Fishing may take time and patience that may not be available in a time of emergency but you can safely bet that you will catch at least one fish per fishing trip (providing there are fish in there , obviously) That being said, Zombease has a great article on what you need for an emergency fishing kit.
This kit can be carried around with you in your bag, EDC kit or just left in your car. It contains all the essential items to catch fish. A little tip would be to just do some research online and see where you have fishing lakes / rivers located near you and your home.
