If you have any fishing tackle worth mentioning you will want a tackle box in which to keep it and in which to carry it when going on a fishing trip or out on the water in a boat. Nothing is more annoying than to not be able to find some very much-needed article when getting ready for fishing and especially so if you are wanting to get an early start to the fishing place and have slept a little too long. Of course a prudent angler will not wait until morning to get his outfit together, but he wants it all together just the same, and you will want some means of carrying it all when going on a fishing trip. Then again you want it all together when you go out on the lake in a boat, for you may want to try some other bait, or you may want to quit the fly tackle and try bait-casting as the day advances.
Tackle boxes are made of leather, copper or japanned tin, and if you are of a mechanical turn you can make one yourself out of wood. Ordinarily they are made with compartments for reels, artificial baits, hooks, lines, and other articles that are likely to be needed. There are usually one or more trays that lift out. The leather and copper ones are best but one can get just the kind he needs or the kind he can afford.
