Of you carry a first aid kit when fishing?
Lots of sharp things like knives,hooks,rocks and all other manner of other things.
I keep one in the big bag,one in the daysack and a small one man in my coat.
Luckily I’ve only needed what you can fix with a bit of insulation tape.
Anyone else carry one?A1D52C31-12B7-4843-B6E4-FC8F4601C3EB.jpeg

No but I have thought about it before and there's been times when I could have done with one but I've not got around to sorting one. So I'm glad you have brought this up. A good little job for lock down while I can't fish (y)

I never have carried anything but I ought to. I went back to a rock mark a couple years ago on a low spring tide looking for a lure I had lost the day before. Found the lure but slipped over on the rocks in shorts, and badly grazed my leg from ankle to knee. Because I'm on blood thinning meds, it was bleeding like a stuck pig. I managed to get back to the car where I had a large roll of kitchen paper so cleaned it up. Thinking it through though, since I wasn't actually fishing, if I had had First Aid gear in my fishing tackle, I wouldn't have been carrying it that day.

Good point, on boat yes, in car yes but should do on shore fishing sessions. I’m going to try better this year. 👍

Never had an injury fishing and certainly never carry anything in case of one.
Just dip your hand into the sea if you do!
