This is a great, simple tip for those of us who keep a fishing rod and reel under the seat of their pickup just in case you can sneak away for an hour at lunch time to the local fishing hole. Sure, a tackle box doesn't have to take up a lot of room, but why not make your own - and make it fit in your pocket?
The Field and Stream blog, which we happen to enjoy thoroughly, posted quite a few DIY tips and tricks recently, and this one was included. All you need to do is empty the insides of a Tic Tac box, find a small, circular, retractable box cutter (you can find companies that give these out as promotions or find them at your local hardware stores), and round up the basics and you can be fishing in no time.
Glue the box cutter to the outside of the empty Tic Tacs container, put in a few split shot weights, a length of fishing line, some hooks and swivel snaps and you're set.
