i did this per your recommendation and I am stoked. One idea though is to make the groupings of rigs on the stainless steel shower curtain rings not too many. Maybe groups of 5-8 rigs unless you donít use weights. I went as far as putting 4-6oz knocker rig sliding egg lead on the rigs. Now even non fisherman can easily open snap swivel and connect an entirely new rig that wonít be tangled etc. Totslly awesome rec on this and thanks!!!

​​​​​​Each of my rings has 5-6 sleeves. Each group is different test/hook size. I have a groups of 20#, 30#, 50#, and 80#.

Iíve been using pool noodles for our single hook 6í leaders, it works good but they are exposed to salt water and some have rusted. I started putting chicken rigs in 4Ēx2Ē plastic bags, about the size that crimps come in. I bought 200 bags from a craft store for 5 bucks. Wrap one up with your hand and stuff it in there and you can put multiple bags in a sandwich sized bag. Protects them until you need it. Itís a bit of a haste with the 80 lb rigs since I put the hooks on in advance and they get a little tangled in the bag, but itís still much quicker than making them on demand.

Pool noodle for clark spoons and other bluefish trolling rigs.

Zip lock bags into a Tupperware box with holes in it. I have a plastic garden box near the house that I rinse then lay out the rigs to dry so I can put back into boat sooner than later.

But attrition/replacing hooks is high with my cheaper flounder and top/bottom rigs.

FYI - here's the sleeves I ordered.

Here's the 1/16 panel. It's probably enough to last a lifetime, though.

Piner - I have been using these 6 pocket lure bags for years, they work perfect for DD rigs especially. They have clear vinyl on one side and a heavy mesh on the other so the rigs dry out after you put them away for the day.
