Plano, IL (July 12, 2016) – As odds go, 80 percent is a pretty solid bet. It’s the exact chance the tackle box or bag in your boat—or in any other angler’s possession—bears the Plano logo. Across seven decades, the beauty of tackle storage solutions from the famed fishing brand is that, just like a treasured rod or reel, other than occasionally pausing to marvel at its dependability, you rarely think twice about it. Solid bet, indeed.

Behind the scenes, it’s a different story. Even now, angling engineers (a real job title) are jabbing at whiteboards, crunching numbers, and generally stressing big-time over painfully mundane details. The results of their calculated efforts have culminated in the most versatile and complete tackle bag of all time—the 2017 Plano Guide Series.

2017 Guide

Think of it as an angling survival kit. It’s the tackle bag that never leaves the deck of your boat; accompanies you on every trip to the riverbank; the one that somehow manages to photobomb the background of every big fish picture you take. Believe us, it’s there for a reason.

“The Guide Series bags perennially outsell every other Plano bag on the market,” says Plano Director of Brand Management – Fishing, Ryan Olander. “But even after a celebrated history and many enhanced versions, its design is still evolving, getting better. The 2017 bag is all about customization, tackle bundling and of course, maxing out storage space.”

2017 Guide

The 2017 Guide Series 3700, 3600 and 3500 bags begin and end, literally, with the ultra-functional Utili-Tackle Rail System. As a lid, the system sports four over-molded rubberized corners to secure a StowAway Utility Box, while solid attachment points allow for bungee cord box tie-downs. Further, the rail itself offers 17 different attachment points to hold every accessory known to the sport. Forceps, lanyards and clippers? Of course. But there’s also room for split-ring pliers, a Line Saber, fishing towel, retractable ruler, hook file, wacky rig tool, even portable rod holders (we could go on)— not stowed in some far recessed compartment, but right at your fingertips.

Moving to the underside of these Guide Series bags, things get interesting. Consider a tackle bag that’s designed a little like a beach house on stilts. Some might say the point of a tackle bag is to safeguard your stuff. So by simply reversing a second Utili-Tackle Rail System on the bag’s base and adding elevated corner “feet”, ample clearance is created to keep your tackle out of standing water. Ingenious.

And should a rogue wave wash across the deck or the dock—or even if it’s merely slippery with fish slime—the Utili-Tackle Rail Base’s special over-molded rubber surface makes the bag stick. No sliding around and into the drink. Plano engineers have even implemented attachment points for tying the bag down to kayaks, ATVs or boat decks in the roughest conditions. Throw in attachment points for another 17 accessories, and you now possess the most resourceful tackle bag in existence.

“Every angler organizes their tackle and gear a little differently,” adds Olander. “We patterned and constructed the Guide Series for maximum versatility. Its open-ended design allows for total customization, so every angler—no matter their preferred species or fishing style—can fill and equip the bag with all the right stuff.”

A tradition of excellence. Owning a Plano® tackle box has become a heritage that has endured for more than half a century. In 1952, Plano introduced the first molded plastic tackle box. For the next fifty years, the Plano brand found its way into the hearts and hands of four generations. Today, there’s a 4 in 5 chance that if you own a tackle box, it was made by Plano. There are many reasons why consumers choose Plano, including quality, durability and innovation, but our favorite is “It’s what my dad always used.”
