What do you guys use for this? I have a beckman product and would like to get more but can't find them anymore.

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.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
