Prakash, I suggest you use Plano 3600 boxes to organise all your small tackle like hooks, sinkers etc. Then carry that along with your reels in a daypack which will leave your hands free to carry rods. I have plano boxes with me so call if you need some.

Bops

Hi Prakash,

I was one to carry more than I needed on every fishing trip till I dropped half my 'precious' tackle in the drink. We tend to carry too much. It's a good idea to organise all your terminal tackle in a box (plano for eg.) which can be kept safe in a tent/car.

Have a set of smaller boxes for specific needs. On the Cauvery I had a small 'Mahseer Fishing' box with 5 hooks and 5 bits of lead, some swivels and a knife. Never needed more. As I ran out I just topped up from the camp. That way if I lost my box it wouldn't be bad at all. Same for carp fishing, Spinners, trout etc...

There's a whole range of boxes... from size to price, so take your time find something you really need.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Hi MARLIN!
Thanks for excellent bit of info and words of wisdom.
My idea of buying a tackle box is to keep things at one place at home rather than keeping some here and some there. I agree, when going out one can always shortlist the things which may be needed and keep it in a small box.
Wanted to buy something where i can keep all stuff at one place. I liked Flambeau 2059 7-Tray Hip Roof Box with ZeRust on, which looks decent and light on price but my friend confused me by saying a bag will be better for carrying long distance than a box, which has logic.
My question is whether a bag will be equaly efficient in keeping things at its place and will it be easy to browse through all your hooks ,spinners, weight etc as good as in a hip roof box in which you can see everything at one time which prompt you to take all tiny little things which you always forget to take along.
Since i have never seen a tackle bag want some light on it.
Regards.

Hey Prakash,

I use Flambeau bags and box - very good quality + price is not too high. Look at flambeau's site, you'll find many products for choice.

Regards!

Buy a bag and box, for ALL your tackle-hopefully you will fit it all in-remember, fancy bait has caught more fishermen than fish! ;)
then carry the whole set up to 'base camp' and do as marlin does...
