Tackle Boxes for Flies
The angler who specializes on trout fishing does not really need a tackle box since he will probably use a stock fly-book, a stream fly-book and leather reel cases, and the articles which need a general receptacle are very few. But almost all trout fishermen condescend to take a few bass or other fish in season, and the accumulation of tackle of various sorts soon reaches a point where it is necessary to have " a place for everything and everything in its place "— otherwise, chaos. The one thing to be sure about is to get a box that will pack easily in a suit case. Most of the boxes are made short and rather high, and are, consequently, unhandy to carry about. Avoid too many trays. A tin box will hold just as much tackle as a deluxe box in sole leather. The leather boxes are, however, very much the stronger and better; and for a canoe trip on which things are unavoidably banged around a good deal the leather box is the only thing; the tin boxes are soon total wrecks. Prices range for the japanned tin boxes between $1.00 and $5.00. The leather boxes are rather expensive: $7.00 to $15.00. It is a good plan to have two boxes, one large one for the general kit, and a small one for the pocket — an especially good plan for the bait-caster.
