The Free Little Tackle Box

By Reagan Dunne

You might ask, “Well what is a little free tackle box?”  I can answer that for you. The box looks a lot like a mini library, however it has fishing gear.  This connects to my dad because he was a boats man and loved to go fishing any chance he got. The little tackle box will provide most of my dad’s fishing materials, such as fishing wire, lures, weights, hooks, leader lines, etc. As people go in and out of that dock for fishing they can borrow or take and replace the equipment.  


 On June 3, 2019 the first Free Little Tackle Box was unveiled in loving memory of Scott Dunne.  It is located in the community he lived at the time of his passing, Bonnet Shores Narragansett, Rhode Island.  A small gathering of family and friends where there to see this project come to life.  Take a look at the video's below:
