Introduction: Complete Mini Fishing Kit

Picture of Complete Mini Fishing Kit

I've seen a lot of fishing kits on this site, but most don't include a rod or reel.  My kit is complete with rod, reel, and tackle.

Step 1: Materials

For this fishing kit, you will need:
1. Small lures.  Jigs, small plugs, small spinners, plastic worms, sinkers. ect
2. Candy/Mint container
3. Case to put it in.  Mine is a small bag from a fold up backpack.
4. Pen Fishing Rod.  I got mine from , and it was worth every cent.  You can also buy cheaper pen rods, but they only extend to 36 inches, and aren't as good of quality, while sells rods that are 57 and 63 inches long.

Step 2: Tackle

I tried to use many different lures for different fishing situations.  Go over the image notes to see what each lure is.

Step 3: Putting It Together

This step is kind of self explanatory.
Put all your tackle in the candy container.  Then put your candy container in your case.  Mine is a bag from a fold up backpack.  After that, put the rod in the bag.  If you want, you can unscrew the handle from the reel and flip up the bail to make it flatter.

That 's it.  A portable and lightweight complete fishing kit.  
Enjoy.  Please rate and comment!

Hey, I loved what you did with your pen rod and did something a bit like it

Thanks for that link, I have been looking for a good compact fishing rod and reel. This is much better than the old pocket fisherman I had when I was a kid.

The reason a lot of them dont have a rod and reel is because they are designed for a survival kit, hand fishing correctly will catch just as much as a rod and reel.

however this is a good little fishing kit albeit common sense.
