    Jeez, I need to up my game. All I carry is fishing stuff. From my long distance running days, I learned a sock works just fine.

    Kidding aside, thanks to all for the great ideas.

    As many snakes as Iíve seen in the mountains I should probably consider that.

    For the fishing itself, pretty much the same kind of stuff as everyone else: Leader and tippet appropriate to the conditions, nippers, line straightener, floatant, sinkant, strike indicators, Hemostat, fly boxes, net, wading staff, sunglasses and lens cleaner.

    For being in the back o' beyond: First aid kit (including trauma stuff), leatherman, hip flask, snack, cigars and zippo, sunblock, chapstick, bug dope, insect head net, small thermos for coffee or water, binoculars, camera, toilet paper, small flashlight, backtrack gps, bic lighter, packable raincoat (If I'm not wearing a wading jacket to begin with), superglue (mini), duct tape wrapped around sharpie in first aid kit, one long boot lace.

    Beyond having what I need for fishing, I try to be reasonably prepared for the minor discomforts that commonly happen in the bush, for life threatening trauma, and for the possibility that I might have to spend a night out if things go really wrong.

    This thread has made me consider getting a life straw

    Damn I've been using leaves this whole time... or use a sacrificial sock if things are messy

    I am pretty minimalistic when I fish, a few spools of tippet, 2 fly boxes, gink, extra leader or two, knife, lifestraw, flask, sometimes a headlamp, and some other medicinal herbs that are now legal in Canada.

    A lot of medics with outdoor training discourage the use of a snake bite kit - especially the cut and suck type. Turns out people usually do a lot of extra damage when the try to cut in non-sterile conditions, or they cut too deeply. Worse, the "sucker" swallows the poison.
    Here is a link that explains this further with suggestions for treating a snake bite in the wilderness.

    I thought that's why runners started cutting the bottom of their t-shirts off - first necessity then fashion...
