    Default Jig storage ideas?

    Guys i'm reaching max capacity in my jig/fly box, currently using an 8 x 11 double sided fly box for my new ties. Wondering if you guys have a better solution for jig storage....

    Probably no better, but I use cheap pistol cases. They hold quite a few jigs and are super cheap. The ones with the foam inserts, I just flip them over so the flat side is up instead of the dimpled side, then take one side out so it doesn't smash the jigs.

    I bought some photo storage boxes that have a lot of small boxes inside it. I posted about it several years back so let me see if I can find it.

    Okay found it. I also posted below the original post where I hot glued some white foam inside to stick the hooks in.

    I should add that I do not carry this entire box out, I take up to 10 of the small boxes in a tackle bag.

    I leave the main box at home and take what size and colors I want in the tackle bag. I can probably put 10 or 12 little boxes in my bag, but if I do t want that many I can get by with a handful if I am going with someone and don't want much stuff to take. One little box will hold a good many on a double row.

    Also make sure to place the small boxes in side the large one so that the jigs are not hanging upside down and then it weight always pulling down on it. Just plan ahead before you glue in the foam.

    Skip could you post a picture of your box and how the foam is glued in? And maybe the type of foam used? Thanks

    Small plastic bait boxes from wallyworld,I don’t glue foam in,I cut it a tad big and squeeze it in each compartment.I find it easier to select or pin the jigs to the foam if it’s not down in the small compartments.
