Do I need a Kayak First Aid Kit?

     I was fortunate enough to write an article for The Fisherman's Journal about stocking and packing a first aid kit for your kayak. My philosophy on a kayak first aid kit is that it needs to be compact, versatile, and multi functional. Just about every item I carry has more than one use and can easily fit into a small dry bag in my front hatch. 

     I'm not going to re-write the article, but here is the link to the magazine where you can find it along with other great kayak fishing articles. 


  1. When talking about first aid kits in general, you need to know for what you will be using it. For example, a kit for a kayak, will not be the same as a kit for camping, or hiking. Therefore, you need to know how to make a proper first aid kit for every situation and what items to put in. Here is an article that talks eaxctly about that, and you will definitely find it useful.

  2. Some websites indicate that if you are properly trained and knowledgeable that you will not need to use wilderness first aid kits. This is something that I do not agree with at all. Regardless of the training and experience you have, accidents can and do happen. Even highly, safety conscious people can run into trouble at some point while out in the wilderness
