    I thought stink bags for all your nets were and still are superb when they came out.
    Putting wet nets in the car was a nightmare for years until they came out and made the motor honk big time.

    footplates on on seatboxes makes fishing the pole so much easier.

    Also like the adding of modular trays to the box as on Preston Absolute, good platform as you say, add a tray….inch perfect, so comfortable.

    stink bags another good one……but fishery nets have won me over..

    Not quite a tackle item, more an essential item on a cold day….what about metal flasks?

    Thank heaven for these, used to smash loads of the glass ones, even remember cork stoppers!

    I know it’s not a ‘serious’ post …but…the OP said 21st century. Many things have been ‘invented’ or improved but how many in the past few years have been genuinely innovative ???

    Well Richox, I suppose Hollow Hydro was as original as it gets,but true there will have been many “copies” or improvements to the originals.

    Yes I used cork for floats, made from those in medicine bottle with a cocktail stick shoved through, my Dad never trusted me with his peacock quills.

    Look how tackle barrows have come on, finally they have decided that the old fashioned coach-built pram like me Mum shoved around is the best set up…….should have askd our lass she can get more in an ASDA trolley, especially when I am paying!!!
