Saw Bear Grylls do this with rocks. Once the fish was trapped, he stunned it with a rock, and voila dinner. As far as tree branches and the like, that's what I was thinking.

I like that idea a lot. Though don't they make fairly cheap, small, and collapsible fishing rods these days?

I'm sure they do, but you could just use a stick.

I've also seen Bear Grylls drink piss. Just sayin. Don't wanna try everything seen on TV

Besides, piss is a waste product for a reason. It serves little more than to make you feel not quite as thirsty, actually doing little for, or actually harming, a body's hydration situation.

Rather than a fishing pole, keep different size hooks and line with you. A sapling can be quickly hacked up and used as a fishing pole. Extremely small hooks will be needed for very small fish in most small creeks. You can also just put a piece of any type of meat (including a worm) on a hook or the end of a stick and place it under the water beside a crack in a rock. More often than not a crayfish will crawl out and latch on. You can then slowly pick him up and drop him in a bucket. It doesn't take long to get enough for a meal or to go with your fish.

I have hooks, line and a few sinkers. I think there are even a few flies in mine. I would use either a simple hand line or use a stick. I fished with a bamboo pole as a kid.

And I agree that a fishing pole would be a good addition to a bob too. Just gotta find a small breakable one to fit.
As someone else suggested why not get an Altiods can and put some string hooks and weights in it find the stick for te pole as you go itl save room
