What good is a fishing line without hooks? If you plan on including a fishing line, you better add some hooks as well! Throw two maybe three of them in. You might get yourself in a pinch and run out on hooks.

4 Whistle

The noise emitted by the whistle will let animals know that you’re present. To rescuers, it’s a great help in getting your position and locating you through the strength of the sound and where it’s coming from.

5 Compass

I’ve tried using a good quality wire saw for cutting small wood trunks and animal bone and I’d have to say it’s pretty effective. Although you might have to exert a little more effort than using a plain handsaw, it’ll have to do when in distress.
