Extreme Tackle Box


Image Tackle-Box.jpg
Description Fishing is a lost art in much of the world, particularly as many bodies of water are barren or toxic. It can be pretty handy for you, though, as the water doesn't seem to kill you.

From the advertising insert, this tackle box was intended for a no-holds-barred, winner-take-all fishing contest celebrating the release of Extreme Bass XIII. It doesn't explain what happened that it would up on the black market in Metroplex, though.

It's kind of a shame, the pictures of the venue are breathtaking. There aren't many unspoiled tropical paradises left and they look even more inviting from Metroplex.

There's some pretty awesome stuff in here. Some of it looks kind of useful, but it mostly just inspires you to head out fishing.

From Podcast 32, about how to get the cheater's line:

Just go all in. Don't half-ass cheating.
