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!
