Removed the Fight or Flight Outcast, the Thompson Survival, and the Aspen Ridge Sports because of availability issues. Added the Sulkada D81D1, the Readyman Fisherman Card, and the 12 Survivors TS24000. The Fisherman Card is a neat way to carry hooks and lures for emergency situations. The drawback is that it doesn't include any line so you'll have to carry that too. We felt we had to include the Sulkada because it is one of the few survival fishing kits that operates remarkably similarly to a fishing pole, in that you have a pseudo-reel and the line can be cast with a similar motion to normal casting. The modular structure means that you can switch the pieces around to get the most leverage for the task at hand.
The Vigilant Trails Pocket takes the top spot because it has everything you need to catch a fish, and it also includes a hand spool that can be used to hold on to large fish without hurting your hand. The grubs it comes with can be used to catch anything from bass, to mountain fish, to catfish.
Consult local fish and game regulations to ensure compliance with the law.
