Step 1: Gathering Your Supplies
You, and YOU alone can determine the number and type of things that go in this kit. heres what I myself use:
Pre-tied mono-filament leaders with snap swivel.
Steel leaders with snap swivel.
assorted steel hooks.
assorted lead weights
Spider Wire OR Berkly Trilene mono-filament fishing line.
Assorted Jigs and Lures
And Anything else you want to put in it.
Step 2: Puting in Your Supplies (Part I)
1: Put in your Safety Pins
2: Put in your assortment of leader lines
3: Put in your assortment of Flies
4: Put in your assortment of lures
Step 3: Arranging Your Supplies (Part II)
5: Put in your treble hooks
6: Put in your assortment of hooks and lead weights
7: Put in your monofilament/spider wire
Step 4: Thats It!!!
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.
