Rare Monster Fishing Tips #1: Storage & Organizing
This issue of Rare Monster fishing tips is all about do-it-yourself fishing tackle storage and organization. These simple fishing hacks will help you keep the tackle box tidy.
1. Organize Fishing Hooks with Safety Pins
Organize your fishing hooks and keep them tangle-free with safety pins. Sort them by size and type, and then put them on a pin through the hooks' eyes. Your hooks will not get mixed up in your tackle box. Use a stainless steel pin to avoid rust.
2. Use Mint Containers & Tins to Store Terminal Tackle
Repurpose mint containers for storing swivels, snaps, split shots, and other loose terminal tackle. Mint containers and tins are the perfect size for your tackle box (or your pocket) and designed in a way that makes it easy to access its contents without dropping anything.
3. Wine Corks are Great for Making Hook Holders & Emergency Fishing Kits
Use wine corks to protect yourself from getting hooked when digging in your tackle box. Stick fish hooks, jigs, or small lures into the top of a cork and the holder is ready.
Wine corks are also great for making mini emergency fishing kits or survival kits for hikers, campers, and any kind of outdoorsmen to be prepared for a situation where you may require an emergency food source. Add fishing line to the hook holder by wraping it around the cork to complte the kit. With some modifications, the cork can be used as a bobber.
