Tackle Tart or well equipped?

Had A deadbait session today at my members water, at first i fished 1 rod with a float ledger and the other just ledger(Alarm). I was having difficulty with the float ledger so i swapped for a ledger(Alarm) was quiet cold and windy with the weather, I didn't bank any fish but i still enjoyed the day as it got me out the house and some fresh air down my neck.
So i though I'd do a post showing off my pike tackle.
Most of my family ask the same question each time i purchase tackle........." haven't you got enough?" my common answer is no, as well as giving the excuse that it would help me with my rigs, technique etc.


IN THE TACKLE BOXES
-Some rig tubing,
2- pocket knives,
-A lighter,
-A baiting needle,
