Those look cool, an example of a very good imagination. I have a lot cheaper method that prevents corrosion and takes a lot less space in a tacklebox. I save Tic Tac boxes for hooks & stuff. Use a permanent marker to note size, peel the paper band off the lid, pop the top off, put the hooks in with a half teaspoon of white rice. The boxes store perfectly, stackable, and you can see the hooks inside. The regular size Tic Tac is for small hooks, split shot, swivels, etc. The new jumbo box is for 5/0 hooks and bigger, bullet sinkers, C-rigs, flies, etc. The rice manages moisture. The lid pops on & off. If it gets loose put a little strip of tape on a side to tighten.

Cool! Glad to see someone else using the rice trick :) I started doing that years ago after seeing rice in a salt shaker and asking my father why it was there lol

Works like a charm!

I never thought of using tictac containers! thats a good idea. Though I do like these new things because the hooks cant get tangled with one another.

tic tacs, i remeber why i don't like to use small containers like that for bank fishing, cuz i sound like a rattle snake a mile a way...lol... i found a remmedee for that prob,when i hiked alot i would dampin any rattels from gear with a napkin, match book folded in the container or what not, you'd be surpised how anoing a bottle of weights will get! lol..

when you throw away containers re look at them for fishing perposes....i have used cough drop boxes, pill boxes tupperwear, film canisters, but never used tictax yet tho`.... i would recomend on some containers to defunk the smells, like film canisters, wash um and put some garlic powder in um...

The new supper sharp hooks will actually get dull from banging around in containers where they are kept loose. I use a Falcon or Plano box and cut a piece of foam rubber " The free floating key chains they give out at the boat shows work great" I stick the hooks in the foam and then put them in the boxes. this also prevents your fingers from getting stuck by the hooks when getting them out of the box.

Thanks Jared. I meant to click the thank you icon, but I see it doesn't come up in this section. I missed that memo. :D

I forgot about this thread and forgot to order some. I'm fairly well organized, except for my hooks and weights are somewhat in disarray. Lots of little baggies of this and that tucked away here and there....LOL :lmao:
