Every spring, I dig a hole in the back yard, get last year's tackle box, bury it and start over
Actually, I have a shed in back with space. I have three tackle boxes and a couple of plastic cases. I keep rock cod gear in one, ocean in another, freshwater in another and use the plastic boxes to select my arsenal for whatever I'm targeting at the moment. I only bury the ocean box 'cause my cleaning stops after the filet. Rod & reels are treated much better. My reels from 20+ years ago are still in great working order. I have a few rods 30+ years old, but I'm slowly replacing them.
