Fishing Tackle Boxes
While I'm not going to belittle the good old white bucket a well layed
out tacklebox can be worth
While I think some guys have gone overboard carrying around only a little less than most well decked out tackle shops do there is good reason to carry at least quantity of boxed tackle. Lures protected from the elements will save you money in the long run with very few unused hooks needing replacing because they copped a few splashes of slat water. Those same orderly lures will have your first choice sitting right there for you to grab and rig up in record time to get to the fish as they bust up in font of you.

Fishing hooks and treble hooks are very sharp and purpose to penetrate and firmly embed themselves in fishes mouths. They are also excellent at penetrating and embedding themsleves in human flesh.

Sacrificial weight, streamlining, securing, covering, shock absorbing there are so many things that can be done by things you don't usually see in a tackle box. Keep an open mind, you might be amazed at what you come up with that makes you a better fisherman.
