Mobile Kits

#1

Post by Paul Arden » Tue Aug 24, 2021 9:45 am

I’ve bought a bigger tool box for my kit this week. It’s always a mistake because it doesn’t matter how big the box I always have to sit on it to close it. Anyway my question is how do you organise your materials, capes etc? Zip lock bags or something more easily searchable. I would like to get my kit fully sorted for guests whenever they can arrive!!

Thanks, Paul

If you're talking about fly tying kits, I personally don't have a permanently, mobile kit. But when I'm on the moce, I tend to store materials by pattern in separate zip-lck bags or compartments in one of my (many - no surpise there, I suppose) fly tying bags. Of course I don't put in a spool of black thread and say silver tinsel in all zip-locks.
By doing it this way, I completely eliminate "nice-to-have" items, which I'd otherwise have in abundance :-).

I’ll take some pics back on the boat. Mostly zip lock bags of course. If would be nice to organise those somehow :p Organising hooks and threads seems impossible to me!
