There is no getting around it. Fish are your best source of protein in a survival situation. There is simply nothing else you can put on the menu that will satisfy your protein needs that comes as easy as fish. That said, having a survival fishing kit or fishing tackle in general will make fishing much easier. Sure you can use an old coke can and some fishing like with hooks made out of wood. Or you can be prepared with an awesome survival fishing kit like this compact version.
I am very impressed with this kit made from very basic materials, pvc, wood, paracord and a few drill holes. Not only does this little gem offer you a sturdy backbone to “cast and reel” from it also houses all of your tack in one spot. You can keep your hooks, bobbers, lures and a multi tool right inside the pvc pipe.
