If you follow this survival website at all, you know we are big fans of using fish as a vital survival resource.
Just about every body of water holds some sort of fish and with very few exceptions, they are safe to eat if you cook them properly and relatively easy to catch.
Plus, if you use the passive approach (using traps, trotlines and static netting,) your energy output to get a yield of nutritious fish is very limited, which means your daily intake needs are reduced, making even a small fish catch worth the effort.
The best thing about fishing, though, is that you can use just about anything to fashion the tools you will need to be successful!
On the next page, we cover four primitive methods you can use to make sure you have a nutritious meat source in virtually every survival setting.
