A Place for Everything!

Every fisherman needs a good tackle bag or box. One that will carry everything you need for a great day of fishing. There are a number of different types of tackle bags and boxes so you need to make sure you get one that fits your needs.

The most popular tackle box is like a little chest of drawers. Made of hard plastic they have a number of compartments so you can store all your lures and other tackle. As well they usually come with boxes that are waterproof which is great if you want to take along your cell phone.

If you would rather have a soft sided tackle bag, again there are lots to choose from and they come in a number of different sizes. They also come with plastic storage boxes as well as pockets so you can take along a bottle of water or other items you will need out on the water.

Why a Tackle Box is Important

An Essential Item!

Every fisherman needs a tackle box or bag. They come in different sizes and can be used for salt water or fresh water fishing. The best type of tackle box comes with a number of removable trays to make it easy to find everything you need for a great day of fishing.

Tackle boxes are made of several different types of material including plastic, nylon or canvas when it comes to tackle bags.

You will have to decide on the size that you will need depending on the type of fishing you plan on doing or for how long you intend to be out on the water.

If you are a salt water fisherman you will probably need a larger box to carry all your lures, different size hooks, fishing line, fishing leaders, weights and live bait.

On the other hand if you are a fresh water fisherman, you might need a smaller box to hold your artificial bait, lures and floats.

Fly fisherman are often looking for light weight material for their tackle bags so they can carry them when they are on the river bank casting their lines.

.Whatever type of fishing you do, having the right tackle box or bag will be a great help so you can enjoy a wonderful day on the water fishing.

Here is what one happy customer had to say about this tackle box: ”High quality gear box. Difficult to bring out in front of fishing buddies as it engenders a huge amount of "box envy". the stowage boxes are all high quality and the angled system is great to use. The side compartments provide room for the stowage box and I also store additional leader spools in there, 1 large spool and 2 small fluorocarbon spools on the other side. The feet hold the box securely in place and each compartment opens and closes with a feel that exudes quality in excess of any other fishing box I have looked at.”

Here is what one happy customer had to say about this tackle backpack: "Like many serious anglers, I like to hit the water early in the morning and stay on the water 'til dark, with the LED lights incorporated in the Wild River bags, I can hit those prime fishing hours and be able to work efficiently in the low-light/no-light conditions tying on lures and baiting hooks.

This backpack is great for when I'm going to be riding an ATV to a pond or walking in and need my hands free to cross fences, etc. Very smart design and good use of space and pockets. I also like the pliers holder with the retractable lanyard for my clippers!"
