I could consolidate this into one box but always tie mine in advance so space is not huge issue. It is more important for me to have things separated and easy to find. All of the beads were purchased at a craft store because of cost and better selection. The surgical loop seems to work well for me on the on the non business end and a snell knot for the hooks is what I use too. I bring a few extra floats and blades with just in case.
