Wow. Good thing you had a buddy with you.

I usually fish alone. I have spent many years backpacking and solo backpacking so I do my best to be prepared for the unexpected.

I carry this in my fishing vest. 10 Ounces.

Here is what it is. an LED small flashlight. A plastic orange/chrome emergency blanket(warmth/shelter and bright so you can be found) a mini bic (fire). Several bandaids - one large and a couple of butterfly type. Antiseptic wipe, Triple antibiotic ointment, Alcohol prep pad, a chapsick rolled up in a few feet of duct tape (i prefer gorilla tape - this is good for bandages, repairs, splints etc) A few feet of paracord (tons of uses) a whistle (signalling) a piece of ferro rod (backup fire)
Several rubber bands (tons of uses). A drinking straw filled with vasoline and cotton balls (fire starter). Drinking straw filled with iodine water purification tablets.

About the worse that is going to happen is an injury or you get lost and have to spend the night out. I already carry a pocket knife. In the OP's case - clean the wound, bandaid and then duct tape over that. It doesnt weigh much and cost almost nothing. I carry a similar one when hunting and a different one when hiking. It lives in my fishing vest - I never remover it and then I dont have to remember it. By the way the drinking straws are just sections heated with a lighter and then pinched together. Makes a great waterproof mini holder for just about anything (pills, meds, tinder, etc) and McD's gives them away free.
