Spare kit.
This is probably the most critical stuff as it will be all you have if your main kit gets misplaced. I take 2 x 3 piece rods in a lightweight solid tube that comes onboard with me. One is a flyrod, (6 or 8 or 12 weight) and the other is a Temple Fork 7’ 6kg casting stick. One reel for each goes in the rucksack as well. I use the Exceller range as they seem reliable and have so far caught skippies, wahoo, Nile perch, yellowtail, salmon and plenty of kingies. Add to this one of the small Plano boxes with a minimal selection of end tackle and lures and at least you have something to use.

Hopefully that is a start!
