    One skill I learned as a kid was making my own trotline. I found these instructions online for anyone interested..

The entire kit fits into a 15"x3.5"x2" case. Easily stowable into a BOB, and able to be quickly assembled.
    Visine, where did you purchase your small fishing kit?

    Mags, awesome gear. While I don't have in depth knowledge of the construction of snares and deadfall traps, I do understand the fundamental principles behind them. Awesome knowledge when you need it.

    I'm taking a chance you mean gear other than firearms....

    I have a pretty cool complete commercial "Emergency Fishing Kit" (although no rod/reel, reel imporvised by Nalgene bottle,) a SpeedHook military version, OD green gill net, Thompson's wires snares, a 100' roll of 24g brass wire (more snares), improvised netting from my bug screen, carry extra ziplocks that can be used when forageing. I also have a working knowledge of and practice traps, and deadfalls.

    Good post. I found a 'pink' fishing pole with a fairly good reel on it that is about 3 feet long tops if that. At first I thought it was a kids set up but upon looking at it further realized it was fairly nice as a whole. Perfect for backpacking or sitting in a BOB and not taking up hardly any room and being ready to fish with out having to assemble the rod like you would a larger breakdown pole. Haven't been able to find out who makes it, or if it was a project of someone's. But I have added the who 'fishing' ensemble to go with it and my other rods as well.

    started a topic BOB, BOV, Lures???

    BOB, BOV, Lures???

    So many people talk about their BOBs and what's inside them, but what about gear to procure food? I recently picked up a Mitchell rod and reel for around $20, and a gob of lures, bait, hooks, and swivels.

    My best set up is a teardrop sinker with a 2 foot leader to a #10 hook, and powerbait. Just today, along with my father and his wife, in the course of only 2 hours we were able to pull in our limit.

    What's your fishing/trapping/hunting gear?
