When I was in the Boy Scouts many years ago, one of our guys had a stainless steel fishing rod that measured maybe 24".

I used some google-fu and came across this site. This gear really has my attention as far as size and capability.

The break down and store pretty well too...

According to their product page, their Pro Staffer in Florida caught 150lb tarpon with the dual tip rod end.

If I was stocking a BOB, I wouldn't buy anything from an infomercial.
I picked up a miracle blade3 at a rummage sale. it seams to work pretty good. I've picked up a few things labelled "as seen on TV" Really, none of it has been too bad.

That little fishing pole made him enough money to start his info-empire. its probably not half bad. like I said before, all you really need is a bit of line and a hook. even if it breaks on you, you can still salvage that much from it.

I've purchased a couple different "pocket" fishing gear rigs. Every time I tested them out they were total junk and broke after one or two uses. I would suggest just packing a little line, a few hooks, and maybe a couple plastic worms and go 'cane pole' fishing if the need arises.

If you are looking for a "trunk rod" you can get telescoping poles that go from over 6' and collapse down to well under 2'.

A spool or two of mono-filament fishing line and a crap load of various sized hooks is all you absolutely need. Just tie some on a stick with a hook and a worm on the end and you'll catch something.

A bit of 6 lb test also works great as emergency sewing thread.
