Being able to light a fire after it’s rained is the kind of thing where a few easy tips and seeing (or reading about) someone else do it can really give you the hang of how to manage it for yourself in the future – if ever you do need to start a fire in wet conditions like those.
You absolutely can start a fire in wet conditions.

Undoubtedly, you already have all this kit lying around the house, so pick a rainy weekend and get started on practicing with this guide by your side!
