Re: how long would you keep tackle?
Wait for someone on the forum to lose a tackle box or have their stuff stolen. I had all my fishing gear stolen a while ago and some people on the forum sent me some stuff. It was a great feeling. I literally had NOTHING when it came to fishing because they got all of it. I was happy to get anything.......I wouldn't have cared if it was old or used.
This tends to happen to a couple people a year on this forum it seems....
If I had some old gear or gear I didn't use a lot, that's what I would do. Pay it forward.
