Protein is always a concern for preppers. Even those who are operating homesteads. That protein can go away in a hurry and there is nothing to replace it.
Protein is usually on the move. Its often on four legs and can hide or move really fast. That makes it a lot harder to get, if you don’t have it behind a fence or captive in some way.
Most people think about fishing as a bunch of guys on a boat, mostly drinking beer. Or a couple sitting on the bank on a lazy Sunday just killing time. When you really think about how effective fishing can be in getting protein that’s when things get exciting.
There are all sorts of methods for survival fishing and you can use methods that are hands on or methods that are absolutely hands off and can become passive producers of protein. Imagine being able to walk away from a pond or creek and then return to protein on hooks or in traps. This article offers up 8 methods for survival fishing that you need to get to know.
Whether you are the type of person who fly fishes for brook trout in the mountains of the eastern woodlands or if you are a person who never goes fishing, make fish a part of your survival protein game plan. It is a captive protein that will not go away. Most running bodies of water are going to hold fish. Be sure you have small hooks and some sort of bait.
Small fish are often more plentiful. Don’t only worry about catching the big fish because they look like a bigger meal. Protein is protein that you and your family will benefit from. Nothing heals the body or wards off disease from a weary body like a good piece of meat. Don’t let the local fish resource go to waste.
