|Rod and reel in white sleeve, camo waist pack, and white foam cooler|
I had to pick up a rod and reel, but at the tackle shop, and I had to pay full price for them by the piece. Yeesh.
My camo-patterned waist pack has been my fishing "tackle box" since I received it as a gift from my uncle as a kid. I usually keep it packed with a small tackle box of basic hooks, sinkers, and small lures. Bobbers, pliers, and other pieces can float loosely in the kit. Any special needs can easily be added for a specific trip if needed. This pack fit easily in our suitcase and still holds almost everything I need for fishing here in Dublin. It's hands-free, which has kept it in action for twenty-plus years.
For keeping fish, I use my white foam cooler. This cooler, and two larger ones, were left in the closet when we moved in to the apartment. It fits perfectly on the rear rack of my new bike, so it travels easily.
