Pry Bar Works Great for Rocky Soil - In the New England garden, rock is our constant companion, and those of you with hardpan know how difficult it is to break through. No list of tilling tools would be complete without the pry bar, or breaker bar. You know the one, 6’of iron bar just perfect for, well, prying and breaking things. This one gets a workout whenever I start a new bed, prying up the inevitable boulder or two that I run across. It also is another tool that can double as a pick, so we’re running out of reasons to own one. If we’re starting a bed, we’re adding compost and humus, mulching and perhaps even moving soil from one locale to another, so I include the barrows and carts in this group. This is a personal decision, based on what you intend to carry and your own personal limitations. The traditional wheelbarrow with the single tire up front is great for working in tight spaces, but it can be unstable with a big load, and anyone who has had to shovel a load of gravel off of a lawn will attest that it is not much of a labor-saving device if you dump it.
My rod was tied on the roof rack of the vehicle and many miles later when I stopped at the fishing spot, I noticed that the spool of my fishing reel was empty. Somehow a branch or thorn had managed to snag my line and emptied the spool. Luckily I carried spare line. There are many more items you can put in your box but try not to overload it. If you are fishing from a boat then thats ok, but if you are walking and fishing along the river bank try to travel light.
Swivels - A variety of swivels is also desired. Flies, Jigs and Lures - Your different flies, jigs and lures can take up a lot of space, so be selective. Floats and Bobbers - If you use them, an odd assortment of floats and bobbers are stored in the box by most enthusiasts. They are very light weight and do not take up much space in your average size box. Line - A spool of spare line and a length trace are very important requirements. If things go wrong and you lose your line you should be able to replace it. I was once traveling to an isolated fishing spot and had to drive on a narrow dirt track lined with thorn trees.
