Maximize your angling efficiency with the power of manifested reality (or just get one of these new Plano soft tackle bags).

Whether you fish from the bank three times a year or enter tournaments every weekend, taming the totality of your tackle collection probably involves the venerable Plano StowAway tackle tray. If it doesn’t, it should. Put simply, these versatile, industry-standard plastic boxes hold the lures and terminal tackle needed to go fishing, and are the building blocks of any comprehensive tackle management system. StowAways can be organized by lure type, target species or even color. Load ‘em up into your favorite soft tackle bag and you’ll be ready for any angling inevitability.

But not all soft tackle bags are created equal. Just because a bag fits all your stuff doesn’t mean it’s an asset to you on the water. People fish differently – for different species and from divergent platforms in diverse environments. Fresh or salt, bank or boat, the ideal soft tackle bag lets anglers fish how they want to fish, while eliminating the tackle storage pain points that conspire to steal fishing time and enjoyment.
