Introduction: Pocket Fishing Kit!

Picture of Pocket Fishing Kit!

This is an easy way to pack everything you need to fish in a tiny, buoyant, easy to carry package! I've used a Tic-Tac container, but you can also use soda bottles, travel sized shampoo bottles, or any kind of small plastic container! 

Step 1: The Container

Get creative and find a container. I like this one because it is flat and easy to stick in a survival kit or your pocket. 

Step 2: Attach the Fishing Line

Decide how much fishing line you want.
There is no magic length, just don't get so much that it tangles up.
Tie a knot in the end of the line, and poke a small hole in the container.
You want to thread the line through, and then start wrapping it around your container of choice.
I took a red sharpie and marked the end of the line so it would be easy to find, and then placed a strip of duck tape over the line to hold it in place
.  

Step 3: Pack Your Kit

Once again, what goes inside is really up to you. I managed to find a bobber small enough for my kit, and stuck fishing hooks into a tiny bit of foam. Then I added a few sinkers to make casting easier. 

Step 4: Go Fishing!

The technique for fishing with this setup is pretty simple. Take of the duck tape and let out some line, then use your hands to cast. I prefer to hold it in my palm, and use my three fingers to wind up the line. I have caught a few small fish with this setup, but sadly nothing worth noting yet. Tell me about what you catch, I don't mind a good fish story!

Great idea! But just a tip, you can save alot of room by not adding the bobber. Your can use a small stick in the wilderness if you needed one! But still a great kit

If you're only going to be hand fishing with this, I recommend using foam ear plugs for bobbers; they take up less space.

Thanks for sharing.
