Which type of tackle box is right for me?
That depends on a number of factors, such as:
Location: Consider where you are planning to do your fishing. If it is some distance away and you have to walk, you will probably now want to take as much fishing gear as if you can park your car next to your fishing spot. A smaller tackle box or one that has removable sections may be best.
Size: This is mainly down to preference: do you want to keep everything in one box or do you like to split your gear depending on the species of fish or the location?
Hard or Soft: Tackle boxes come in a variety of shapes and materials including rigid boxes and soft bags. Some anglers prefer to use their hard box to double up as a seat, while others prefer a soft bag which tends to be lighter in weight.
What should my tackle box include?
There are of course an endless number of items to choose from, but here are some essentials that should find a place in any tackle box:
Extra line – carry several spools with varied weights of line to adjust to different conditions
Assorted hooks – make sure you have a good selection of single, double and treble hooks
Sinkers – pieces of lead that add casting weight to light bait. These come in various types
Lures – you may prefer to fish with live bait, but it is wise to have some artificial bait too
Pliers, knife or multitool – for those inevitable line tangles and other emergencies
First aid supplies – always carry some plasters, antiseptic cream and waterproof tape
Sun screen – essential if you plan to spend several hours fishing!
Insect repellent – flies, mosquitos and other biting insects thrive near water, so be prepared

What else should I look for when buying a tackle box?
Make sure that your tackle box has enough space to keep all your line, lures, and other equipment stored efficiently and in such a way that you can access it quickly, even with one hand while holding your fishing rod in the other. This may well be the difference between landing a catch or not, so make sure you can open your tackle box or bag easily and decide whether you want a transparent box, one with drawers that slide out, or a soft bag that is easier and lighter to transport – the choice is yours!
