Why a Safety Kit Matters for Anglers

On the whole, anglers are hyper-diligent when it comes to fishing gear preparedness but often overlook the ‘safety’ factor. Wired2Fish’s Kyle Peterson spends a good portion of his year traveling for fishing, both domestic and international. Experience has taught him to come prepared, whether it be a multiplier, sunscreen, or an antiseptic spray to fend off inspection.

Kyle takes a moment to show us his go-to kit, the Angler Aid Essentials Box, and how he used it on a recent bass fishing trip in Mexico. This kit’s utility extends well beyond first aid. It contains a variety of essentials to address everything from lure modifications (super glue), boat maintenance or being prepared for an unexpected overnight.
