Your biggest fish that you've ever caught (weight, not length)

I found what seems to be an abandon swimming pool in the woods earlier, and I mean like in Bumblefuck, The Woods. Pretty awesome... Comments/Ideas?

OP this is cool shit, but let's not be silly this doesn't look like Bumblefuck. That pathway/general area looks tread-upon as fuck. I'm guessing this is like 5mins from the road. Where is this? I wanna hike out there with you. We can eat mushies and pretend to swim around in the pool and then maybe just see what happens :3
Build a skate park, they will come.

Back in the day, my buddy and I found an abandoned pool. Spent a couple days draining the water out with buckets and cleaning it up, and then we shredded the gnar.

Be sure to show what you get Pepsi!
Also, do you happen to know much about rainbow trout? As in, what kinda lures should I acquire for it?
Rainbows are all I fish for, where/when will you be targeting them?

I've always done best fishing bows with roe.
>Mystery Tackle Box
I saw that in the last thread and I'm thinking I'm going to do both (MTB & Lucky tackle), 1 for Salt and 1 for fresh
I looked at a few of the past boxes on LT and they looked pretty good. I didn't look at MTB yet because you have to put an email addy in to see theirs and I'm not sure yet which person I feel like being for fishing stuff/spam

Does anyone have a large collection of survival information? Like a mega-pack torrent? What's the best way for a sheltered retard to consume as much information as possible about outdoor survival?
11 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.

Don't torrent anything. Start by going on short range overnight camping trips and day hikes.

If you do what you're thinking of you're going to end up buying a tonne of shit and never using it.
>end up buying a tonne of shit

I'm looking for an education, not a shopping list.
>I'm looking for an education
Then go /out/ as the other guy said.

To what end do you want that information? Just to masturbate to survival/bug out fantasies? Or do you actually want to get out?

I thought about getting a pack but they seem awful expensive for something that I won't really need because I'm setting up a forward base. So I'll just get one of those camo duffel bags from gander mtn. But maybe i'll get a cheap alice pack or something. what are good packs in that price range?
I should also note that I'm from the northeastern united states of freedom.
>I don't waste all my money on rent
Do yourself a favor and find some friends or family to move in with. You won't be able to find a job when you smell like shit and are developing trench foot. You have enough money to rent a place for a few months anyway, what the fuck?
>hot tent
No such thing, you need a good sleeping bag.
>last a decade
lol not if you expect to make it your home for that long

I went to /fa/. someone there told me to come here b/c of reasons.

just got hired by UPS (under paid slaves).

going to start out as a pt package handler/sorter. basically, move ~2000 boxes that weigh usually 20-40 lbs (max 70) into or out of trailers for 3-5 hours. I need boots that can take the stress. I've never bought boots.

It needs to be/have:
1 black/dark brown (company policy)
2 hard toe cover (in case a box drops)
3 ankle coverage

I read the /fa/ sticky. There weren't a lot of options, and some of the suggestions on there...

Sup /out/

Bored EMT here, and an outdoorsman. Post your first kit/contents and I rate/give suggestions for it.

Don't have a first aid kit? Name me a price, the kind of camping you do, around how much weight you can carry around and I'll find you something good for it!

General tips:
1. Don't buy shit you don't know how to use. (scalpels, IV sets, airways in most cases)
2. Have something for both major and minor trauma.
3. Have a tourniquet.
4. Have shears
5. Have a shitload of gauze.

Ask away!

I'm really stuck for places to go hiking and camping, only place I can think of is Kerry, or maybe Galway, but because it's so isolate it'd be difficult to organise.

Alright sc/out/s, what kind of activities do you do to stay in shape for your (enter favorite outdoors activity here) season? What do you do in the off season? What are your goals conditioning wise?

My activities:
Hunting, camping, climbing, downhill sports.

Mostly cardio, some weights(trying to avoid the gym til February), and small amounts of body weight.

Off season:
Lots more running and some rugby. Most of the time I just watch my intake.

Get back down to 10% body fat and be able to run constantly for 60 mins at 7mph.

What do you guys think about buying surplus army rations to take as camping food?

I'm going on a 10 day hike, and I'll need all my own food from the start. I've toyed with bags of oats, rice, and looked at camping food by companies like Mountain House, but it all seems either very expensive for little calories or very heavy and bulky.

So i looked up how they do it in the military, and discovered that you can quite easily buy military rations online. You can get an entire days calories for a reasonable price and a small enough size. Such as these.

You are going on a ten day hike and have never prepared food /out/ before?
So I've never gone out, but want to. It seems to me, and I may be wrong, but it seems that it would be best to take raw high energy density stuff that you can make into other things. Stuff like high protein flour, powdered milk, anything dehydrated and with a good packing density. Am I missing something?
>The only reason im asking is because ive never seen or heard of anyone using this method before so it makes me skeptical.

Because it will be heavy as fuck son. Thats the appeal of freeze dried meals suck as Mountain House. They weigh very little. When I do a long distance hike I try to keep pack weight as low as I comfortably can. It makes for a much more enjoyable hike
