To give yourself a chance at any sport you must have the right equipment.
Fishing is no different. Most people assume all you need to fish is a
rod, line, reels and some bait. Oh, that it were that simple. Your tackle
box holds your "bag of tricks" for fishing. And a well prepared tackle
box can make all the difference during a fishing adventure.

If you have just started fishing, your tackle box will look very
different from the tackle box of an experienced angler - probably a lot
more empty space. However, it takes years of experimentation before you
put together the perfect tackle box. As long as you have a basic kit in
your tackle box, you can build on it.

First, you need the actual box. The best kind is one made of   hard
plastic. Do not pick a box that is too heavy though, as this   will only
cause you problems hauling it around during your trip. It is   important
that the box has a good latch to keep your fishing resources   from falling
out at the most inopportune times.

The next items to purchase include a large supply of hooks of various
sizes, fishing line, and weights. Make it a point to get the correct line
for the type of fishing you intend to do. Also make sure you pack a spare
reel - you may need it.

Weights are needed to sink your bait to the bottom of the water. Weights
can be made from different metals, but never buy lead weights. These are
highly toxic and can kill fish and other wildlife.

You also need a variety of lures. Lures come in many appealing shapes,
sizes, and colors. Different fish are attracted to different lures. You
will get to know through trial-and-error which are best for which types
of fish. Some fishermen prefer to make their own lures. This may be an
approach that interests you as well.
Additional fishing accessories can also be useful, but don’t buy
something for the novelty value. Make sure you can get usability value
from it. You can find out all the information you need about various
fishing equipment from a fishing shop.

Also remember to take a map with you so you can either locate a preferred
fishing spot or find a new one. It is also beneficial to take simple
first aid supplies in a small compartment in your tackle box. Nothing too
fancy is needed if you are just starting out; just a few band aids and
some disinfectant. However keep the latter away from your bait!

By following these basic tips, you will be well on your way to creating a
first class fishing tackle box.
