During last boat trip on a large river and night camping in spartan conditions on the bank of the river - I had the chance to check the functionality of my new acquisition - waterproof Hells Anglers..
During many years of fishing I have had a chance and need to buy various bags and containers for transporting equipment and lures . I was looking for the one, reliable. Every box or bag has its bed and good sdes. The bags from fabric, even though they were suppose to be waterproof, after prolonged rain seemed to be dropproof - this kind of impermeability is not something that an angler needs.When the bag was full of water I had to empty it and then I had to dry it - what was quite onerous - when I had to take off the jig hooks and other sharp things, which could blunt easily and I could hurt myself easily. It is not difficult to imagine what happened with my sandwiches, which I took for all day summer fishing, they were wrapped into a paper not foil because I did not want them to brew… Whereas big, plastic bags which are indeed waterproof, weight a lot, especially if you put all your staff inside.
I took a container for the trip
During a few day trip, during which weather conditions were rather changeable, I appreciated the adventages of the connection of light material bags with waterproof features of plastic material. Intensive rain and water at the bottom of the boat were not a problem any more. After fishing I did not have to carry the container with lures and hand equipment ( necessary on the boat ) to the tent, what was beneficial for my not so young spine:) I could find a small towel in my container, cap and reserve socks and batteries. During night’s rest time I did not have to unpacked those things, they stayed in the container, dry during the whole trip.
If I am appraising this container so I have to add this fact: It was great idea to create a small recess in a hatch. During the trip I had to make some adjustments - mainly with the lures. When doing it on the wobbling boat it is difficult to control all of those fleeing swivels or cylindrical wobblers - everything roll at the bottom of the boat. The recess is a kind of a workshop which allows you to change the treble in a wobbler without stress. Summing up, waterproof Hells Anglers container is a kind of the Golden mean when choosing containers for accessories and lures especially on the boat or fishing camp - in these conditions I could accurately test the functionality of the container.
