Angling, a lost art for survival and the soul
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio player below!
There may be no greater way to find balance in this mad mad mad mad world than to stand on the banks of a river in July with the sun winking at you from the horizon. Fishing rod in hand, you take that first step into the water and the day begins. There are fish to be had, sights to be seen and, of course, the thrill of entering an environment that is so alien to your everyday, yet, so inviting.

Unwanted times can hit you at any time in the world. There are many cases where outdoorsmen faced the survival issues and they were unable to find the aid and their supplies also finished like water and food.
How to catch fish!
Austin Martin “Homesteady Live“ Audio in player below!
How to catch… Like actually catch fish the next time you go fishing.
Fishing is one of my favorite past times. It gets you outside with friend and family. It lets you enjoy the beauty and peace of spending time on the water. And if you do a good job fishing, you can even bring home some dinner. Read more “How to catch fish!”
Cooking for Taste!
Host: Jack Spirko “The Survival Podcast”
Fish is dish best served well, “not ruined”. If I were asked what are the two things that most often ruin fish I would say the following. Over cooking fresh water fish and often bothering to cook some salt water fish at all. Now don’t get me wrong I cook plenty of salt water fish, but some of it is best simply sashimi or ceviche!

My guest on the last show was Rob Torcellini, one of my YouTube friends. If you don’t know him, this is his YouTube channel… http://www.youtube.com/user/web4deb we spent quite a bit of time talking about his Geodesic Dome greenhouse, and greenhouses in general. Depending on where you are located, a greenhouse could be used to grow vegetables year round or simply as a way to lengthen your growing season. And one of the huge benefits to greenhouse growing is the fact that you don’t have to deal with unpredictable weather.
We had just gotten started on the aquaponics discussion when the clock ran out. Since I’m putting together my own aquaponics system right now, I’d like to make this a focal point of the show. For those who aren’t familiar with AP, it’s a process that involves growing fish and plants together, in one complete system. The waste from the fish is what provides the nutrients for the plants. In terms of being self-sufficient, an aquaponics setup would certainly make a great addition. If you were able to put this inside a greenhouse, and grow the plants year round, that would be even better. But you’d probably need a way to heat the greenhouse. Well, Rob solved that problem with a Rocket Mass Heater. And for some added insurance in the event of a power outage, he also installed solar panels to meet his electrical needs.
So on this episode of Preparing To Provide, we’ll be providing lots of information for anyone looking to get into aquaponics. And if time permits, we will also be discussing the Rocket Mass Heaters and various solar power options. Please join us for another great show, and feel free to call in with any questions you might have.
