I bought a Stanley tool box with wheels and retractable handle on Saturday to use as a tackle box. (27.48 in B&Q). I used it on Sunday for the first time and it was really good. And it's very strong - I am 20st and it took my weight sitting on it easily with no flexing or bowing of the wheels which appear to only bear the weight when it is being wheeled about.

An added bonus was a trick I took from someone fishing at Leysdown on Saturday...

I've always kept my traces on slithers of card in rig wallets previously but was considering buying these fancy colour rig winders. But now I've discovered a new use for pipe insulation!!!

I bought a 1m strip for just under 2.00 - cut to length to fit in the new top tray of the tackle box and hey presto - new way of storing my traces.

You can secure the line by slipping the quick link in the part of the insulation where you would normally open it up to slip over a pipe and then as you wrap the trace around it, you can safely secure hooks. I added a small band of tape to seperate the traces and keep the slot tightly closed. I works a treat.

good idea m8
ive used the same box a couple of times but i found it a bit big to be humping over miles of sand at my local storm beaches when the tide is out ideal for shorter treks though. a really tough box, ive used mine as a work platform on many a job and it seems to stand up to being bashed about in the back of the van.

i like the idea of pipe lagging for rig winders. ive got loads lying around in the shed might make a few for on the kayak and thread a bungee through to tie them down

Cheers mate. I agree over a long distance the trolley will prove tiring but for the majority of places where i fish, I don't have to long a walk even at low tide. But I do think the faithful rusk sack still has a use for me - most likely to carry the tilly and sandwiches when night fishing.

I love the insulation idea which i copied from a fishermen fishing Leysdown last weekend. It worked a treat and I no longer have to worry about getting my traces all tangled up in my rig wallets, which I now use for keeping hooks, lures, feathers etc in in the bottom of the trolley.

I think I'll flick between trolley and rucksack dependent upon where i'm fishing.

Thanks for the feedback - nice to know others are reading my posts.

Happy Fishing!!!
