It’s vacation time for the VanDam family but that doesn’t mean fishin’ isn’t a part of our leisure time.

Tackle organization is something I take very seriously and so should you. I put a great deal of emphasis on being efficient when I’m on the water, and keeping my lures and terminal gear well organized is a huge part of that.
