I just keep mine in a small Plano case that fits in one of the pockets of my Beckman rod case.

I use Today's Tackle storage pouches. Less banging around inside the tackle box and a lot less hook tangling. These pouches full of tackle fits fine my small ice tackle tray.

Find it here at Outdoor Pro Store

I think this is what you are referring to?

I use the small plano boxes. However, I also cut a wine cork in half lengthwise. I put the hooks in...usually can fit 6-7 spoons on a half of a cork. Not as many tangles. and I can sort them to size/shape/type/etc. Kind of nice with cold hands...I don't have to sort through and untangle treble hooks. I just pick up a section of cork, look to find the right spoon, and tie on!

Intersting idea, I may have to give that one a try. This would realy be handy for spoons with trebles - they love to get tangled in to an interlocking ball smirk

Thanks for the tip.

Yep, I'm glad I could pass on the tip.

I thought of it...surprise...sorting jigs,spoons, and the like while, yes, drinking wine.

It can be a little tricky cutting a cork in half lengthwise. I used a method not recommended...holding it on the counter with one hand and cutting it with a steak knife. Safe to say, I had too much wine that evening. crazy

If I did it over again, I would probably utilize a vise some how and a little hand saw or dremel tool.

Here's what I've been doing for 4-5 years now.

Got about a dozen of these boxes full of spoons organized by manufacturer and style.

Hanson,

How in the world do you decide which boxes to take with you on any given trip?!?! All those pretty spoons all lined up so nicely.

Those Glo-Devils get me going. You reminded me that I need more firetiger patterns for my Glo-Devils!

Hanson, I thought I was pretty organized with my stuff. But, you bring it up to a whole diffrent level ... very impressive.

Hanson your way to organized! LOL..Smart system..I like it.

I recommend the type of storage box's with the Zerust Blue tab dividers. These rust inhibitor impregnated box's will keep your wet jigs from rusting off the hooks and split rings.

Lots of size options to fit most anglers needs around to chose from. Every Gander Mountain soft side tackle box comes standard with them now, and they are widely available separately.

They work, I have no rusty jigs, hooks, or cranks all season long now from switching to them. I tend to ride my tackle hard and put them away wet...I need the box to take up my slack..(I'm a slacker..Eh)...as I'm not nearly as organized as Hanson is. wink

I also like and use the Today's Tackle storage pouches. I especially like the size "C". I call it my Chubby Wrapper....Ah..Yupper...It's Always safer to "Wrap that Rascal Chubby". smile

Beege - I believe those are fly boxes that Hansen posted. Anywhere you find fly fishing gear, check there.

Fly Fishing Boxes. These particular ones are from Gander Mountain. I searched and searched for something that would work well and the Gander boxes have worked the best. Cabelas sells them too but the box sizes and shapes are a bit different and I didn't think worked as well.

The black "stuff" on the left side of the photo is foam weatherstripping that I picked up from Menards. Its adhesive on one side. I have a couple layers of weatherstripping stuck down to eachother to get more height. When you shut the lid, the weatherstripping compresses against the spoons and holds them tight. They don't shake, move, or become tangled at all.

I've been doing this for about 4 years now. It takes up a little more space but I've never had to replace a spoon because the paint chipped off or anything like that. If I do happen to lose a spoon to a fish, I know which ones I'm missing so I can buy replacements. Its a pretty effective storage system.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
