Does anyone take a medical kit w/ them when they fish? Yesterday i was cutting off a fork shaped stick to use as a rod prop and i cut myself!! I put a pretty nice gash in my left index finger. My friend and I both knew that i had to get it to stop bleeding but we didn't have any medical supplies. I ended up cutting off a piece off the bottom of my T-shirt, rapping that around my finger tightly, and using 40 lb. braid to fasten it. My finger bled for 15-20 mins. When the conservation officer came around to check peoples liscences, he asked to see my finger. He said that i should've gone to the hospital to get stiches, but it was too late now, since he didn't come untill 2 hours later. This kind of scared me, so now I have a medical kit that I will always take fishing in case of an accident!!!!!
