Spading Fork - A spading forks four tines are much heavier than those of a pitchfork. If well-made, its a rugged tool, built to do battle with soil and the rocks it contains without bending. It pierces the ground more easily than would a shovel or a spade and is great for pre-loosening soil that you can then lift out with a shovel, and for breaking up heavy soil clumps so that amendments can be added. The stubborn, matted roots of meadow grasses yield to it and can then be yanked intact. Dandelions are pulled out unbroken if a spading fork has probed around them. The digging fork, a similar tool with flattened tines, is the best one for prying out root crops such as carrots and potatoes.
Swivels - A variety of swivels is also desired. Flies, Jigs and Lures - Your different flies, jigs and lures can take up a lot of space, so be selective. Floats and Bobbers - If you use them, an odd assortment of floats and bobbers are stored in the box by most enthusiasts. They are very light weight and do not take up much space in your average size box. Line - A spool of spare line and a length trace are very important requirements. If things go wrong and you lose your line you should be able to replace it. I was once traveling to an isolated fishing spot and had to drive on a narrow dirt track lined with thorn trees.
Tools for Planting - Our spade heads the list yet again, cementing its lead as the tool to have. The spading fork can work here as well. Have a shovel or fork handle lying around? (I told you to use the pry bar to lever out those rocks…) Sharpen the point just below the D handle, and you now have a dibbler, or dibber, just the tool for planting bulbs! (If you don’t have the grasp, the pry bar does double-duty.) The trowel, that little hand spade, is the perfect tool for planting window boxes and containers or moving those little volunteer seedlings or any of those other small jobs that are so much of the joy of gardening.
