Fishing tackle and bicycles must be two of the most difficult sports to store equipment for. They are not particularly big or heavy, but do take up a certain amount of floor space. Fishing tackle and bikes both need keeping dry too which make outdoor storage impractical unless you have a shed or another form of outbuilding.
What makes storing them more difficult is the fact that both past times come with more accessories than you could shake a stick at. How do you organise all of those nuts and bolts or rig tying bits and pieces. Not only is it a case of storage though, you need to be able to get at them easily, easier the better in fact especially with bicycles.
I love cycling but everyone must have had that feeling where they know they should go out but really can’t be bothered. If you’re in one of these moods and your bike is right at the back of the shed that’s your ideal excuse not go out! You need your bike to be easily accessible you will be far more inclined to go out on it.
Although the same applies to fishing tackle, it’s not as important as with bicycles. I have yet to be put off going fishing by the idea if having to dig out the tackle from the back of shed. Having said that though if it were more accessible it would certainly make the process a whole lot easier, in terms of packing the care and then on return storing the equipment.
