While tackle boxes are traditionally used by fishermen, tackle bags are becoming more popular because they are lighter in weight, easier to carry and smaller to store. Tackle bags come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but most have plastic inserts to keep all of the lures, fishing tools and other paraphernalia of this sport safe and handy.
Fishing tackle bags are usually crafted from sturdy, rip-stop nylon or canvas twill. They can be shaped either like a square duffel bag or a backpack. The former type of tackle bags has one shoulder strap that is usually padded for added comfort.

The backpack style tackle bags have two shoulder straps as expected. Some even have pull-out handles like carry-on luggage. This makes them a lot easier to transport over smooth ground such as a dock, worn path or packed sand.
Inside tackle bags, there are many different plastic trays and compartments sturdy enough to hold all the different things you need for a great day out by the water. Some small containers are perfect for hooks while others will hold your favorite lures. A spot in the bags can be kept for bait containers and your lunch, coffee thermos and a water bottle can stay on the opposite side.
Whether you choose traditional tackle boxes or try more modern tackle bags, be sure to get one with plenty of room for everything you need. No one wants to have to carry to bags around with their rod and reel all day.
