Whether you are out on lake or river for the day, on an extended camping trip or in a survival situation, fishing is one past time that everyone can do and in a survival situation, it is a critical way to get vital food.
One way to wreck a fishing trip or make a survival situation worse is to hook yourself.
Unfortunately, if you fish enough, hooking yourself is almost an inevitability.
