You, and YOU alone can determine the number and type of things that go in this kit. heres what I myself use:

Spider Wire OR Berkly Trilene mono-filament fishing line.

And THATS IT!!! now you have your own pocket sized Survival Fishing kit that triples as a land based survival kit if you know how to use your kit properly. you could make snares, catch a rabbit lie "cheat fishing" (where you sink the hook into the back of the fish). you could even make a shelter if you needed to in severe cases. feel free to tailor your kit to YOUR needs...mine is made for me. the things that I included in the kit are basic essentials...the lures and pre-made leaders are a luxury. you could catch a fish off just a hook and line if you had to.

I hope you enjoyed this Instructable as much I did making it!! and good luck surviving in the wilderness. hopefully you will NEVER have to use this kit.

I have heard the the braided fishing line has less memory, I will probably use that in mine but overall pretty good kit there.

i would add paperclips you can bend the tips and tie then to a fishing pole and repair a eyelet or to a stick for a cane pole

really, everything in ANY survival kit has a use...the use of the items though are only limited by your imagination...the pins could be used to make a hairpin trigger for a snare or deadfall trap, or could (in a severe case) be used as a makeshift hook...but that would be severe. its all about knowing how to use your kit efficiently.
