Fishing gear packaging materials

Before you start packing your fishing equipment it is important to have the following:

  1. A sturdy (used/new) cardboard box*;
  2. A fishing rod shipping tube;
  3. A tackle binder;
  4. A fishing line spool box;
  5. Bubble wrap bags;
  6. Bubble wrap;
  7. Packing peanuts and/or crumbled paper;
  8. Adhesive tape and scissors.

*Make sure that the cardboard box is big enough to fit the fishing rod. An average fishing rod is usually 2 meters tall. However, most of the newer fishing rod models are now foldable. That means that you will need a much smaller cardboard in length.

Fishing equipment packaging tips

Packing a fishing gear for shipping can be proven quite challenging for many people. If this is the first time shipping your fishing equipment, we recommend you to take the following steps into consideration.

  1. Carefully remove the reel from the fishing rod (and any other detachable parts);
  2. Place the fishing reel in a bubble wrap bag;
  3. Fold the fishing rod if it is foldable; the rod should not have a fishing line attached to it;
  4. Store your fishing line in your spool box;
  5. Place the fishing rod in the shipping tube;
  6. Store your tackles in the tackle binder or utility box;
  7. Wrap all the small boxes (spool box & tackle box) with bubble wrap;
  8. Place everything with care inside the cardboard box;
  9. Fill the empty spaces with packing peanuts and/or crumbled paper; make sure that the items will not be moving violently inside the cardboard box.
  10. Seal the box with the adhesive tape.

*Please, we kindly ask you to not ship any live baits via courier services. If you are not sure whether you can store a specific item in your cardboard box, we recommend you to contact our friendly customer service.
