Carry a Backpacking Boat Anchor  I portage my canoe a lot, so I know how much precious room a heavy folding anchor takes up in my pack. But I also don’t always want to drift-fish. Solution: a basketball net. Tie off the bottom with a short piece of rope. When you need it, fill with a few large rocks, and tie off the other end with a drop line. I use poly rope because it’s a good general-purpose rope for around camp. --Joe Doss, Columbus, Ind.

How to Clean a Fish (I use a box cutter on cat fish. The blades seem to dull fast and the razors are easy to change. I feel like I get more meat off of the fish.)
