It seems tackle boxes are one of the most overlooked aspect of fishing. I have plaqued myself with cheap tray tackle boxes in the past, I call them glorified trout boxes. These type of boxes are cheap, hold a considerable amount of tackle, and are small in size. But hardware can easily jump from tray to tray, and god forbid, if the tackle box flips upside down you might as well call it a day so you can go home and spend the evening sorting a rats nest of line, tackle, and hooks. Since I have been complaining about my glorified trout box since breakup my wife and daughter surprised me with a new tackle box for father's day. They bought me the Plano 777 series box.
I think this will be the tackle box I have always wanted. Sometimes when I target specific fish I do not need the entire tackle box to tag along. I setup one of the large utility boxes specificaly for salmon, one smaller utility box with trout hardware, another with an assortment of small flies, and the last box is filled with pike hardware. I can grab a utility box that fits my needs and head out on the water, or take the entire tackle box if desired. There are no trays to jam, more than adequate room, and the utility boxes just top off what has so far been a well designed tackle box. This one is a keeper.
What boxes do you guys/gals use?
