Growing up, Plano was the standard for tackle boxes. Now we are getting some modern innovation with the A-TACS Pattern being slapped on their military focused tackle bag, plus they have a great back story to go along with it. Frankly, who wouldn't want a tactical tackle bag. Check out the full release below.
Plano, IL – Word has it that in the days following the Iraq war, U.S. military members relieved stress by wetting a line in the private lakes of none other than Saddam Hussein. Not surprisingly short on tackle, these brave angling soldiers fashioned their own hooks, whittled lures and scavenged odd forms of livebait from the Iraqi desert. Some interesting fish were caught, and for a few hours, the defenders of our freedom relived a passion they'd left at home, but never truly forgotten.
It's in honor of these service men and women around the world that Plano has designed new military-themed tackle bags—tough-as-armor 3700 and 3600 Military Bags. Constructed with a durable canvas that's reminiscent of an army rucksack, these fully armed soft bags include two 3700- or 3600-size StowAway® Utility Boxes and feature four external zippered pockets, as well as an adjustable shoulder strap.
Adorned with the exclusive emblems of the Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF), Plano Military Bags make a statement that supports this special organization. Providing recreational fishing, hunting and other family outings for wounded military members, the goal of the MWSF is to give back and thank these men and women for loyal service to their country.
To further demonstrate Plano's military appreciation and support, these striking Military Bags wear specialized A-Tacs camo – the same tactical Arid/Urban pattern that has proven itself in a variety of outdoor environments.
Soldiers have since talked about the strange monster fish lurking in Saddam's lakes. If only they'd been armed with Plano Military Bags and StowAway boxes stuffed with their favorite fishing tackle...
