Hello all. Just curious how people organize all of your loose hooks. I have had various plano trays with dividers, etc, and they always get jumbled up and I can't keep them straight. I saw online that people use safety pins, etc. Others use little zip lock pouches with a label card. Others might just keep them in their original package. What I can tell you is that having loose hooks everywhere is an awful pain... Curious what folks are doing out there.

Green Sheffield container. Hooks, splitsot, swivels, beads, etc. One for panfish, steelhead, tuna, etc.. fits in your pocket.

I second EZ's observation about pill containers. The sturdy envelopes most hooks come in stay at home for me and hooks get doled out to various "kits" I bring when I hit lakes or streams. My mobile kit is the little tin I carry in my pocket. The little bar magnet shown in the tin helps keep the hooks separate from the sinkers and makes them easier to grab too. The pill containers I bought were cheaper at the hardware store than my pharmacy.

My hooks are all muskie size and I have found the small plastic peanut butter jars work well for lots of things, even truck keys, phones and cameras, plus they float.

Pill pouches available at any pharmacy work great for hooks, jigs, etc. Cheap and sturdy.

I also use old film containers and write or label the outside of them so you know what is inside.

I have a similar box to what Troy posted. I also use old empty film containers for some hooks. When you have dozens each of 40 different style hooks it becomes a hassle. The secret is just finding a good hook box that doesn't have any gap between the dividers and the lid.

2x2 baggies in a Plano. I've had a few boxes spill before so now I keep everything packaged separately in the boxes.

Doesn't require much organization when you only use a few kinds of hooks ... Sad

I have the rest all in their original packaging in a flip through binder

I use a piece of magnet strip with adhesive backing and stick it to the bottom of the tray. Keeps them in there place
