Storing hooks, flies, etc.

Try this idea, 99% of you are on medicine.
Those little orange colored containers.

Makes nice units, see thru for those little things.

Use to carry a few hooks, sinkers and jigs in one just like this when I was a kid. They float if you don't put too many sinkers in them. I figured that one out all by myself.

My tackle box has been full of them for over 50 years. They worked much better than the 35mm film containers.

My Dad was a pharmacist and I think we store everything in old plastic pill bottles. Nuts, bolts,screws, nails, thumbtacs and many more items so you had better look before you take any medicine around his house you may be swallowing some hardware.

yep, they're great for keeping gear in a fishing vest too, fit in the little pockets real good.

They are also good for storing boat registration and a extra fishing license in.

Also handy in the work shop, run a screw thru the lid in to the bottom of a shelf and screw the bottle on to it. It keeps them up out of the way and lets you see them without knocking them over. Works with old jars too! I have a friend whose barn walls are lined with these for screws nuts and washers.
