The Fishermans First Aid Kit

This kit is available from Dr Deb The Travel Doctor for $175, which is significantly cheaper than ducking down to the chemist and buying everything yourself.

It is called the Dr Deb Outdoor Kit, and comes in a sturdy waterproof clip-top plastic container. Contact Dr Deb The Travel Doctor if you would like to purchase one.
