Sometimes I think tackle is as good as it can get, but every year someone changes my mind with new gear that pushes the limits of what I thought was possible. For example, would you ever have believed you could pilot your boat with a fishing rod? Or have a radio that could show you the exact spot where your buddy is fishing? In other cases, they're improving what was already near perfect. The modern fishing reel is a marvel of design, craftsmanship, and technology. Yet every year reels cast farther, fight harder, and fish easier than the models before them. Likewise, it's no longer enough for lures to look natural; now they actually feel like baitfish. Â¿Â¿ We're living in a golden age of fishing tackle, and the following products are some of the best innovations for 2003. Check them out. They just might make you a better angler.
