    I have been concentrating on how to be more efficient and prepaired so that when I go fishing I have everything I need at hand. I have been snelling lots of hooks and Rigs so I have a good, ready to go stock. Of course they must be stored some place.

    Maybe this will help you as well:

    Go to a sports card shop or walmart and get baseball card three hole clear pocket pages and a three ring binder that zippers closed, many binders that zipper shut are water proof. Also get a pack of 3"X5" index cards. Insert the rigs in to the pockets of the baseball card clear inserts. The index card keeps the rigs from slipping out of the pockets. Now you will have all your rigs on pages for the ready! A good binder with a zipper is about 10 bucks and the inserts and index cards are very cheap. Check out the pictures!!

    Oh my, I am going to have to try this one out. It looks like it would save me a heckuva lot of space in my tackle box! With all those pesky hook boxes out of the way it would be a lot easier to find stuff

    Pretty slick idea! Do you fish out of a boat or bank fish?

    I do some sort of simmilar thing with a Fly Fishing Leader Wallet, it has the individual cleer pouches and velcros shut to do the same thing, is smaller and would still hold a dozen rigs or so.
    See this link for what I am talking about

    http://www.worleybuggerflyco.com/leader/customleaders.htm

    there are much cheaper ones out there but this one showed a good picture of what I am talking about

    Great idea though about pre rigging, I always get stuck rerigging when I should be fishing.....

    Thanks!
    It really is handy when I lose a rig and the fish are bitting! There is no confusion in the heat of the moment to find the rig you need in a hurry!
     
  20. Pure genius. Now I gotta go out and update my tackle armament.
