Stupid thing is that I have always carried a first aid pack in my bait fishing bags but never in my lure bags, yet have had more need for it in lure fishing than bait fishing.

I always carry a small kit with me but thinking abut expanding it a bit to encompass a full rock kit tocover broken bones etc.

We started taking a first Aid kit last year to our B.A.S.S fishins.

Over the years i have had a few falls on the slippy green stuff.

Guys,

A couple of sterile pads and black gaffer tape for larger grazes (micro-pore dosen't stick for long especially when wet)
Waterproof plasters for small cuts (with a bit of black gaffer tape to hold it in place)
Deep cuts, to a finger/hand, (i.e. knife slippage) one of your sterile pads, wrapped in...you guessed it....black gaffer for pressure and keep elevated.

First aid for cuts and grazes in the field.............................done!

Normally have a wide strip of waterproof adhesive strip (great for blisters and preventing them should you find you have to walk miles in wet boots and socks) An antibacterial spray, a decent wound dressing and some steristrips.

Most important of all a mobile phone, keep mine in a waterproof case which has already paid for itself after my last dunking.

I'm a first aider.
Even I don't carry that stuff when fishing.

Where does it end ?

I guess it makes sense to leave out 1 or 2 lures in place of some safety or first aid kit.

The steristrips dont take up any room and are a quick alternative for small splits where a few stiches might be the order of the day. To be honest have not used the spray whilst out but have patching up in the tent between sessions. I've also always got a couple of Ibuprofen on me 8)
