Anyone who has ever fished will tell you how easy it is to lose your lines, hooks and bait. While these are indispensable items to include in any survival kit, you may quickly find yourself in a situation where you need to eat and have exhausted your fishing supplies (easy to do if you are fishing in a reedy area).
Being able to spearfish can be an incredibly useful skill to have, and may mean the difference between having a belly full of fish and going to bed hungry. With access to some simple materials — a long stick –you can spear a fish (or frog or eel, for that matter) and continue to provide for yourself when you've exhausted your other options.
