This is a super idea. So simple, compact, but effective!
Just get some 1 inch PVC pipe and a few PVC pipe accessories from your local DIY store and you’re good to go (I’m assuming you already have some fishing line, hooks and weights)…
When it is finished you’ll have a small 6 inch capped tube with your length of fishing line attached and wrapped around it. For fishing purposes, this then functions like a standard hobo fishing/hand-line rig, see video below
Inside the capped PVC tube you can store a small pocket knife, some hooks and other small fishing accessories.
This is a great compact bit of kit to have in your bug-out-bag, or as part of your survival kit in your camping/hiking pack.
