Choosing a Tackle Box: Hard Tackle Boxes
When it comes to storing your fishing gear, choosing the right tackle
box can be a shopping trip in itself. With hundreds of choices from a
myriad of companies, how can you pick just one to fit all your needs?
Not to worry; I have helped hundreds of anglers search through aisles of
tackle boxes to find one that fits their fishing lifestyle perfectly,
and I can do the same for you.
There are two basic styles of tackle box: the hard plastic boxes that
most are familiar with, and soft tackle bags. Both offer useful
characteristics and are geared towards certain tackle, styles, and
levels of experience. The real challenge here is not deciding what
tackle box to get, but rather what features, based on your own fishing
experiences, you'll need.
Hard tackle boxes come in many sizes and styles, suited for all levels
of fishing experience. Several companies make varying types and each
brand possesses its own unique designs and features. The smaller one,
two, and even three tray hard boxes are ideal for casual anglers and
beginners, as well as children. The trays unfold as you open the box and
clearly display all your lures so you don't have to search long to
locate the one you need. Casual anglers will find simple, hard tackle
boxes to be perfect and those who plan to fish more often in the future
can even plan ahead and purchase a box that's a size or two larger. This
will allow you some room for your expanding tackle collection without
having to purchase a new box when you start buying more lures.
