It better be an emergency if you use this thing, because this is not your Daddy’s tackle box. All 3 versions of the Best Glide Survival Fishing Kits (Standard, Basic, Compact) are pretty sparse but that is why they are called emergency fishing kits. If you are building your own Bug Out Bag, I think you could do better with a few hours at the local fishing store creating a small tackle box for you and your family. But, if you are lazy or just want a cheap insurance policy to throw in your emergency kit, the Best Glide kits will cover your basics.
I would not stake my life on this product but for the size and the weight, it is worth having with you if you don’t have any other options. Out of the 3 choices, I personally like the Standard version (which you can buy on Amazon for around $20). Take a look, we tried to fish with the standard version using just a stick, no luck catching a fish but we only tried for about an hour before giving up. In a survival situation, you might be there a while. Watch the video below, see what you think. Like I said, I built my own but I am old school.
