I actually found this thread section rather humorous. Survival fishing is not about fishing rods, or special fishing gadgets. It is not a type of sport and nor is it a sportsman like activity.

Survival fishing is simply making a path for the fish to get into, using the route that the fish swim in, then narrowing the path channel that you have made and making a barricade so that the fish have no way to get out, and all you are doing is dropping some fish bait in this makeshift pond you created to lure the fish in. You are making this barricade with using either rocks, netting, or using a mesh hammock . It may not be sporting like, but that is not what survival is, it is about putting food on the table for you and your loved ones and living through what ever ordeal you are facing.
