There's plenty of water around, but not everyone has the skills necessary to fish for their survival. This means you can have a distinct advantage here if you know what you're doing.
That said, if you think it's going to be easy, you have another thing coming. You need to start preparing now.
Choosing your approach
When it comes to survival fishing, you have a few different options.
You can take a more futuristic approach and use rods and reels, but then you have to worry about storage, equipment breakdowns, as well as the cost of maintaining them.
Or you can do what many other preppers prefer, which is a more primitive method for catching fish.
We'll talk about both.
Rod and reel
If you want to start by gathering the gear you need to catch fish, you can start now and add a few things to your stockpile over time. You'll want a survival fishing pole for starters. These are compact poles that are lightweight but not the most effective for catching fish.
