Details: A thrilling venture engaged in the pursuit of prey; a time for solitude and reflection; an occasion for relief and relaxation; or just good old fun: angling is all of these. Alongside divine bliss and sexual ecstasy, it’s the perfect way to have a great time. When fishing you leave behind tiresome routines, the job and day-to-day etiquette. You exit the tedium of answering the phone or answering to most everybody. You escape a lot of phoniness. You don’t need or want to be somewhere else. The “news,” the economy, the “mess” are left to the uninitiated. The time is yours, and marvelously the fish and their world become your closest confidants.

A healthy resistance sets up against the usual monotony. No matter what age, gender, ethnicity or belief, with each cast the fisher’s soul increases like an amusement park mounting with flirtatious energy and juvenile glee. With luck, a fish or two will be caught. And, if enticed by luckless adventure or suckered in by the lure of new tackle, if mocked by the fish themselves, the resonance remains irresistible. It’s a world of wonder, drench and gotcha! Fishing is like life would be if life were lots more fun. All-Nite Tackle Box is a collection of odds and ends for any fisher to enjoy.
