    Fishing Line for the Apocalypse or Shortly Thereafter


    What type of line, and pound test, would you recommend for stream, river, and lake fishing, if using only a stick and a hook?

    What size hook, also?

    This could save lives, so no screwing around!
    I don't know.

    I wouldn't go over 10lb test.

        550 paracord with a 6 foot 120 lb steel leader and 30/0 sized treble hooks.

        I would also add about 1.5 pounds of weight to it, melted into the base of the hook.

        That way when you sneak up on a fisherman you can almost ensure that he wont be able to break free.

        Then you will get fish, and gear and a nice long pig roast to enjoy by the water.

          Only 5 lb test, and size 3 hooks will do! Don't let these fly by night, Monday morning quarterbacking, armchair fishermen tell you any different!

            Very soon, there will be millions of people here, all wanting to learn. I was hoping we could reach some sort of a consensus.
            I don't know.

              Probably the bait used most at that time will be bits of flesh from decomposing corpses. Therefore, a size eight hook would be recommended. As TK already stated, the gazillion spools of paracord we all will be stuck with should then be unravelled to about a 6 pound test strength. We will have the women do the unravelling since they will need to do something useful and they don't know how to cook these days.

                I think you can find the size 3 hooks down the Queer aisle.

                      Not everyone has your fishing gear. If you are looking to spread despair, a new social media thread has opened up.
                      I don't know.

                        Thank you. My fishing gear is quite fancy. I have a yellow "Tweety bird" themed Zebco rod. It's pretty great. I also have a pocket fisherman. But that SHOULD go in the social media forum.

                          With that pocket fisherman and a fishing license you can legally open carry in Florida.

                            Bowclan seemed like a decent guy. I wonder what happened to him.
                            I don't know.

                              I think your fishing thread ran him off.

                              bit that could just be conjecture.
