Fishing tackle boxes are an often overlooked but critically important item. Fishing tackle bags however, are gaining wide popularity with UK anglers because of their versatility. Here’s some information about tackle bags and their many innovative features.
Reasons to Consider a Tackle Bag
The method you use to stow your fishing gear, whether it’s a tackle box or a tackle bag, must have a high degree of functionality. A tackle bag has the advantage of looking like a piece of luggage, which makes it easy to travel with. Because it’s soft-sided, a bag is often capable of holding more fishing tackle than a hard-sided box of the same size. These bags come in a variety of colors and styles, from the ever-popular outdoors man’s camouflage to an elegant leather-trimmed piece of gear. Fishing tackle bags are generally made from durable, hard-wearing materials like rip stop 900 denier nylon. Nylon fabric is also easy to clean, mildew resistant, rot resistant, abrasion resistant and quick drying. The nylon used in tackle bags is often polyurethane coated for additional durability and water resistance.
Other Desirable Features of Tackle Bags
Since these tackle bags are used outdoors in varying weather conditions, look for a bag with a bottom that’s reinforced with an extra layer of material. If possible try to find a bag that’s advertised as completely waterproof, perhaps with a PVC coating on the bottom of the outside. A good bag will also have a reinforced bottom and sides. The bag should have sturdy and versatile carrying straps. A detachable padded shoulder strap is also a desirable feature. A good bag will have plenty of external zippered pockets on the front and sides. Some bags have front pockets with zippers around 3 sides. When completely unzipped, these pockets reveal organizational features like pen pockets and clips for car keys and other small items. Inside, tackle bags are very versatile. Many come with a system of dividers that can be added or removed according to the fisherman’s need. Even the top flap of some bags will have a zippered, see-though pockets. The bag should also have some sort of a strap system that enables secure carrying of rods.
There’s nothing more frustrating than being unable to find a critical piece of fishing equipment at a critical moment. Fishing tackle boxes and especially tackle bags, are essential pieces of gear to keep UK anglers organized.
