Organisation both on and off the bank can make a real difference to your success as an angler. Most fishermen have built an extensive tackle collection over time which can easily get out of hand if it’s not kept organised. And even if you are just starting out, the amount of kit you need to get started can be surprisingly bulky. That’s where the tackle box comes into play.
The tackle box is your humble, handy bankside assistant. It is one of the most important bits of kit to get right, too large and it will be difficult to carry down to the lake, too small and you will be missing key bits of kit. At Total Tackle, we know the importance of getting the right sized tackle box. We have a wide range of tackle boxes for to suit every angler, from brands such as Trakker, Aqua, Fox, Kordaand Nash.
Tackle boxes from reputed manufacturers such as Fox or Nash are designed with anglers in mind. It also ensures that tackle boxes are designed for specific types of angling. A predator angler can choose a compact wallet to keep their lures close at hand, while a carp fisherman would prefer a more robust bag with plenty of room for kit and bait.
For beginners, we recommend a smaller, general purpose boxes which still have enough space for you to start building your tackle collection. A larger, modular bag can be tailored to store bait and food, camping equipment and all the kit needed for longer stays on the lake.
The more equipment you have, the more you will understand the importance of keeping it all organised. Most experienced anglers know that an organised tackle box is one of the most important things to get right. Beginners should avoid getting into bad habits and invest in a tackle box early on. Knowing exactly where your tackle is, makes it easy to access and allows you to select which piece of kit you need for your days fishing. Keeping your kit organised like this not only makes your fishing more enjoyable, it can dramatically improve your results.
