Bamboo Bait Box

Bamboo container with walnut reel. The background cloth is from some test cloth my wife wove and turned into small lunch napkins.

Here’s a bamboo container I may integrate into the new fishing kit.  It’s made from a big stalk we got from a friend in Georgia (USA).  I plugged the bottom with a poplar stopper and made the lid from a sotol stalk.   I’ve found that the sotal is denser than most yucca but is still relatively soft and easy to work.

The box can fit a lot of gear (lures, hooks, line, sinkers, floats) or could work as a bait box equally well.  The top is tightly wrapped with hemp cordage to prevent splitting and will be treated with pine tar.
