This is an Island here, you are talkin about my kind of fishin.  ;)

I am partial to Kistler and Castaway rods myself.   As far as reels are concerned I am the verdict is still out.  Lean more towards shimano than anything. :)

One and only one brand would be shimano.  I like the crucials and IMO shimano reels are the only way to go.

For survival purposes I would want   a curado and an old fiberglass rod, would be more durable than todays graphite rods.

I had a shakespeare until about 230 today when it broke in half while trying to retrieve a frenzy crankbait that was stuck in a piece of lumber (sunken railcar). it was a freakin 7 ft rod and it snapped  ~xyz ~xyz ~xyz ~xyzabout 6 inches above the two piece seating area and splintered across my knuckles ^-^ ^-^. I'm only 5ft 7 so I know my massive size had little to do with this 3 month old rod breaking in half. really, is this common? I have to say my next rod will be fiberglass or maybe a cheapie Zebco. I won't feel bad about breaking that and AFA the fiberglass goes I doubt I could...

Try the Shakespeare Ugly Stix for around $30 dollars warranty 70 day &
7 year limited warranty.
 Also Cabela's sells one called a Whuppin Stick for $20, advertised as "Want stronger? buy a crane"
 Good luck hope this helps find one suited to your needs ~bb

This depends... How big is the island? Are there rivers/streams and lakes/ponds? Will I intend to live primarily off fish from the streams/lakes (if there are any), or from fish I catch from the surf??

I don't really have an answer, just being difficult.

Should read what Reel would you want. I would say a Shimano.

Rods, not really sure. i like several. Falcon, Cast Away, All Star even the BPS Extreme rods are nice.

Reel would be the chronarch  mg
Rod would be a Rich Forhan custom revolver rod with a Graphite USA DHX704 blank split grip cork and recoil guides.  ~c~
It is without a doubt the best combo that I own. ~bb

I'd hafta say a Shimano Calais 200-5 on a G Loomis GL2 fast action rod....My mainstay rod and reel combo now.  Lightweight, casts a dang mile, and sensative enough to feel every little thing on the bottom. ;D
