Chuck Daniels was an author in the 1950s, who penned several popular fishing manuals. A skilled fisherman, Daniels included varieties of fresh and saltwater fish and how and where to catch them. Though he authored books, he also published smaller booklets, which generally sold for 50 cents. One of these was included in a tackle box--a box for storing fishing tackle. This small box was assembled in the 1950s as well, and includes nearly everything a beginner might need. The box was likely marketed to general store owners around popular fishing areas. A parent could purchase it for a child, or a spouse might find it useful to introduce the pastime to her or his partner. All the equipment in this box survived untouched since the middle of the 20th century.
