Does anyone have a cool survival fishing kit that is cheap and easy to make? I already have a commercial kit in my pack but I am curious to know what other people have.
If you use a small pill bottle you can use the bottle as a float. I've found a few small hooks, 15 feet of line and a couple of small lead sinkers are just about right for crappie and it all fits with room to spare in one of those chapstick sized Bayer bottles.Two items to add just in case you lose hooks, etc.: A small tin or plastic copenhagen container with extra line and hooks; redundant yes I know but a back-up none the less and a round piece of foam for a floater at the bottom. The foam can be bent, rolled or closed off even to gain further reserve buoyancy.
