Beginner's tackle box detail.png

The Beginner's tackle box is the lowest level Tackle box from the Fish Flingers Distractions and Diversions. It can hold 1 fishing tool, and has 1 slot that can hold up to 150 of one type of bait. It can also store all four pieces of the fishing outfit and six raw fish of the same kind. 110 tokens and 20 medals are required to purchase this item. The tokens will be spent, however, the medals are kept. It can be further upgraded into a Basic tackle box with 230 tokens and 50 medals.

A player using the "Telebank fish" option.

The tackle box has the option to take out equipment or bait, check the start time for the next competition, and view games history. The last function is the same as the Fish flingers scorecard. The history is not as extensive as the interface at the end of the game and does not include the experience reward. You can also check the time when the next competition starts by right-clicking the box and selecting Check-time.

An update on 4 June 2013 added the ability to bank 25 raw fish remotely per day. Otherwise raw fish can only be removed in a bank.

If destroyed, players may claim another one from the Fisherman, free of charge.
