Can you imagine a world without fillet knives, tackle boxes, fishing line and pliers? Just imagine having fishing lures scattered all over your boat, using your fingers to remove hooks from your catch. Would you have a boat? Would you consider a boat an accessory? I think it would perhaps be classified as such.
Living in the 21st century we are blessed with a large assortment of accessories that make our life a whole lot easier. Not only do we have a great number of choices in which types of accessories to purchase, but also we are able to make our purchases fit our budget, our personal tastes and even our own sense of fashion as there is a niche fashion industry related to the sport of fishing.
Tackle boxes have come a long way in design over the last 100 years, early versions of the tackle box would have been made from wood, leather and metal. Now with the breakthroughs in material technology, the majority of the tackle boxes on the market today are made from plastic.
Plastic is a great option for a tackle box since it is light, strong and waterproof. Most tackle boxes have customization options built in with plastic dividers that can accommodate the vast amount of multiple sized fishing lures on the market.
I believe we are very blessed to be living in this point in history, we have thousands of choices available to us. The days of having to hand craft your own tools or spend a months wages hiring someone to accommodate your needs is in fact history. We have several options in which we can shop around to find what we need in a timely and budget friendly fashion. We are indeed fortunate and privileged to be alive today.
