BUG OUT FISHING REEL: $35
If you haven’t notived yet, this month’s box has a bit of a survival fishing theme. I’m really excited about introducing you to the Piddly Stik. I’m very excited to have struck a wholesale deal with the inventor of this product, Tim Rohrer. I’ve seen many hand fishing reels in my days but never one as unique (and quality) as the Piddly Stik. The Piddly Stik is a compact, hand-line fishing system designed specifically to tuck away into tight places – like your BUG OUT BAG. The ability to actively and effectively fish in a survival scenario is a HUGE advantage and the Piddly Stik makes this possible. All of the components of the Piddly Stik are cut, drilled, calibrated, branded and assembled in Tim’s small shop located in Bend, OR. Your Piddly Stik kit includes 1 Piddly Stik, 1 “rod” tube for storing and transporting, 3 tackle tubes, and instructions for attaching line. Although this product was a little pricey to purchase for the box and consequently reduced the number of items I could afford to put in it this month, I believe it’s worth it. Having a good, quality reliable hand fishing reel in your Bug Out Bag is truly priceless. More info at www.piddlyproducts.com
