In search for extremely portable gear, I ran across these mini fishing poles. Now I am not going to say that these by any means will be your everyday pole. These are small enough to fit inside your backpack, rucksack, BOB, car, or where ever you store your gear. I can not vouch for these as I have not tested them, or even seen them in person. I am intrigued by this however as it is so portable. I tend to question quality, but I am sure it would work in a pinch.
