    I've seen several types posted on here thought I would show what I make and use...simple, 1½" plastic pipe, I use about 6" you can make it how ever long you like for the amount of hooks you want to carry, with the loop half of hook & loop (velcro) contact cemented to it. Drill 3/16 or 1/4" holes for the hook point to go thru wind the leader around and secure it with a small piece of the hook side of the velcro. See the pics...Works very well and easy to do...

    Are these for trot lines or rod and reel set up? For my rod and real set up I got some small baggies and put one in each baggie. Then they fit into my tackle box. It works great and is out of the way. Your system alos looks good. If I can figure out how to put pictures on here I will post some pictures. Me and computers dont get along.

    Would work equally well for either, might just have to make a little bigger holes for trout line drops, depending on what size hooks you use...

    I like your idea. Sounds simple. Velcro is reasonably priced. Do you use the other half of the velcro to help hold them in place?

    Yeah...the 'fuzzy' side is glued to the pipe and the other side you cut in small strips to hold the end of the leader after it is wrapped around...( see pics in first post)
