Fishing may be one of the easiest ways to obtain food in a long-term survival situation. A simple fishing kit can provide all you need to catch fish, frogs, turtles, and crayfish. It can also be used to catch small game and birds. The size of the kit will depend on the size limitation of the survival kit it will be apart of. This thread is dedicated to the items that are recommended for fishing kits. Please list the items you have used and why they can be useful in a survival kit.
Here are a few items I like...
Hooks: Bait hooks sizes 4, 6, 8, 10 for use with live bait. Fly hooks (scud type) sizes 10, 18, 26 for catching creek chubs, minnows, and small fish. Jig hooks for plastic jigs. Aberdeen hooks (4x long shanks) sizes 6, 8, 10 for use with minnows and making lures.
Jigs: Soft plastic jigs rigged on three different jig hooks. These jigs can be purchased with fish attracting scent.
Trout Fly: Beadhead Pheasant Tail Nymph size 10. Great all purpose fly plus it doesn't get damaged when packaged.
Bass Poppers: size 8 or 12.
Power Bait worms and grubs: These scented baits can be used in a pinch, just store them in a small 1"x2" ziploc.
Fly Fishing Tippet/Leader material: comes on a small flat spool for easy storage. Can be purchased in fluorocarbon for low visibility.
Split-shot: for lightly weighting line. Fintail type are best for removing.
