Just get the length you want, thread and cap. She made this way more complicated than it needed to be.

Thanks for posting all these fishing vids, it really makes me want to go fishing. I’ve never actually gone fishing. Seems like a good time.

I’ve been watching these on and off through the day, if it wasn’t howling gales and driving rain i’d probably be on the beach tonight. I’m keen…but not that keen.

It does look a bit like a pipe bomb when it’s finished as well.

Fishing is a lot of sitting quietly essentially doing nothing. If that is your jam, then by all means.

Great for thinking and drinking :wink:

Honestly, fishing (in the traditional hook & line method) is the worst expenditure of time and energy in a survival situation. You need shelter water and heat before food. Having those, insects are the most efficient source of protein fallowed by small rodents and prey animals (squirrels, rabbits, birds) and are easier to find and catch on pretty much all situations. Even where fish are, minnows are a more reliable and easy catch and don’t need a hook.

I’d still argue it would be better to know how to fish rather than be stuck in a situation and not know the first thing about it.

I’m all about knowing skills. The point I was making was more ‘think about other things’ because even the best fishermen I know struggle with the feel of a survival fishing kit.

Using the fishing line to weave a net would be more useful than using a hook to catch fish (and could be used to snare other animals as well).
