Selection and completion of a survival kit with means for extraction, preparation and storage of food.
At the same time, the first two days, if climatic conditions allow (in severe cold, you have to reduce the duration of complete fasting), it is better to abstain from food, as there are still enough home supplies in the body. Such a short-term hunger will not bring harm, but will save food.

Mormyshki 2-3 pieces.
Artificial bait caterpillars, worms, flies, dragonflies, grasshoppers, etc..
