Minnow net

A Minnow net is good item to throw in your pack. It can catch not just minnows but other fish. It can be used to put vegetation on it sort of like a Ghillie suit for camo. Also makes an excellent bird trap.

It can be made into a small hammock as well (if it excepts your weight).


Be a wilderness survivor, not a wilderness victim.

It's good, not realistic.
by: Anthony Frailey

Here's my only issue with things like nets and shelter pieces carried around with ya...

It's all fine and good to go prepared for disaster, or prepared to camp somewhere...

However, in a survival situation... you often don't get the luxury of having these extra things.

Mostly what you have carried in your pockets is the norm.

Now, it's possible to find stuff, junk or trash in almost every part of the world, but you don't always find stuff useful when you do.

This isn't a bad idea, carrying a net of any sort would help you out in big ways!
I'm just thinking realistically about how many folks carry around a minnow net everywhere they go. Not many, unless you are already heading out into the wilderness.

other possible uses for minnow net
by: Anonymous

you could probably also use it to tie it up between trees as a base for a shelter....kinda like you would a tarp, but cover with pine boughs or something to block wind/rain etc.

could be used to strain things as well..say u have a fire but only some dirty-ish water with pine needles and dead moths floating on it..boil the water over your fire to kill bacteria...strain through part of the net to get out the debris and bugs and you would have water safe enough to drink if needed.

you could use it to carry or drag things.

Thats a good idea
by: Wakien

A minnow net can be used in a variety of ways and would be fairly lightweight to carry.
