everything but slice roast beef. And
that’s all well and good.
Sometimes, though, the perfect tackle
box is a rugged and reliable old school
tray design—like the no-fail Plano we
fished with as a kid. Rod in one hand,
Plano in the other, we sneaked through
fence openings, dangled the box off BMX
bike handlebars, and pedaled all over
creation looking for anything that’d bite,
like bass spied in the shallows or ravenous
small river cats.
Still today, there’s something to be said
for simplicity. No need for a bait shop’s
worth of different boxes when just the
essentials will do—a few key crankbaits,
some curly tail grubs, a spoon or two,
in-line spinners, and terminal tackle like
floats, weights and an assortment of
hooks. Or assemble a hard box for each
species that only contains go-to starter
baits, no B-squad allowed.
Along those lines, Plano is proud to
offer a new line of old school hard boxes
in one, two and three tray configurations
in bold red, blue and green metallic
finishes—even a periwinkle and pink
version for the girls.
Choose from three models that
offer one cantilever tray with 7 to 13
compartments to three trays with 22 to 34
compartments, as well as two top access
storage areas for essentials like pliers,
braid cutters and bug dope. Same goes
for the roomy box bottoms—there’s space
in spades for line spools, rigs, sunglasses,
a stringer, point and shoot camera, and
the obligatory Snickers bar or a half-pint
of grandpa’s wake-up juice.
And thanks to Plano’s cutting edge
injection molding technology, the new
family of tray boxes is stronger than ever,
meaning you can drop them off boat
gunnels and they’re no worse for the
wear. Same goes for the all-important
latch, which is made of brass to ensure no-
fail operation that won’t fatigue, break or
come unhinged during transport.
Whether you’ve resolved to simplify
your approach, create an arsenal of
species-specific essentials boxes, or simply
need to outfit a next generation angler,
Plano’s got you covered with rugged
and reliable tackle storage options. And
they’re still BMX approved.
