In 2011, Plano’s original Guide Series 4674 Hydro-Flo™ Tackle Bag earned an ICAST “Best of Show” for an ingenious design that allowed water to flow right through the base of the bag, an industry first. Since then, the Hydro-Flo has become a favorite with anglers the world over.

For 2016, Plano’s angling engineers have applied their award-winning Hydro-Flo design to the all-new M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag, a beast of a bag with a manageable footprint and shockingly cavernous interior configured for space-saving storage of big baits via vertical hanging.

Muskie maniacs, swimbait specialists and saltwater jig junkies have had limited tackle storage options... Until now. The M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag stores up to 25 of their large lures in clever hanging bait compartments.  Tie ‘em, fish ‘em, hang ‘em and rinse ‘em. The M-Series Hydro-Flo’s spacious main compartment keeps big baits organized, secure and dry, courtesy of a flow-through design and the reinforced namesake base.

This strikingly stately olive green and cerulean blue bag is big business on the outside, too, with a parade of plus-sized perimeter pockets that zip open and closed to secure all the tools, goods, gear and accessories any angler could need during a day on the water.

Thanks to Plano’s Hydro-Flo performance, you can now run your big, expensive baits hard and put ‘em away wet. They’ll dry fast inside the new M-Series Hydro-Flo Tackle Bag, one of four all-new high capacity M-Series designs – including 3600 and 3700 size M-Series Tackle Bags and an M-Series Messenger Bag – merging voluminous interiors with a sexy signature look.


A tradition of excellence. Owning a Plano® tackle box has become a heritage that has endured for more than half a century. In 1952, Plano introduced the first molded plastic tackle box. For the next fifty years, the Plano brand found its way into the hearts and hands of four generations. Today, there's a 4 in 5 chance that if you own a tackle box, it was made by Plano. There are many reasons why consumers choose Plano, including quality, durability and innovation, but our favorite is "It's what my dad always used."
