Recieved some flies in a tin from a buddy bit ago so I got an idea of how to keep em semi organized.

Lil of this adhesive backed stuff


And voila!

Fit the strips tightly together so they'll hold the flies snugly when the bend of the hook is pressed between em.

That's handy looking!  I remember the ones that had small springs and how I used to get them tangled...what a mess I can make of things!

Yours looks a lot easier to use! :thumbsup:

What a great idea!    This would work great for our tiny ice fishing jigs too.    Thanks!  :)

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.
