    Anyone have any recommendation on good gear bags to store reels and fly boxes? I'm trying to organize all my spey reels,lines and boxes. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have a nice one by Fishpond, but I discovered that there isn't a bag made that will hold all my reels and fly boxes. I'm thinking of remodeling the storeroom with 3 or 4 sets of shelves from Lowes or Home Depot. Then maybe add something like a library card catalog listing where each thing is, and have a check out system for different kinds of fishing trips. It could work.

    I have a fishpond that I use for steelhead gear and it is great but don't get it near salt water or you will have zipper problems. I have two water proof bags with zippers that have BIG teeth and they work well in salt water. I also used a big Pelican case that has held up well, you can shape the foam to fit your tackle. If you are taking it with you in the boat it is a lot different than selecting one that you will just use for organizing. The bass tackle bags also are a great alternative.

    Salmo G.. great idea! It could potentially be marketable once you get the bugs worked out of the system. Consider placing me head of sales which will naturally be negotiated on the water throughout greatest global fishing venues.

    you might try putting bar codes on everything and having an automated system for tracking it all.

    Imagine my surprise and disappointment when I realized that not all my gear for either steelhead or trout fishing would fit. All my tropical saltwater stuff will - for the time being, but that wasn't the purpose I had in mind for it. Bar codes are a good idea, along with hiring a computer programmer to develop suitable inventory and use software that's user friendly, even to me.

    It is a well made bag, that's for sure.

    There's a $25 soft cooler being sold at costco right now. That will work if you'd rather spend $100 on something else like explosives or blow.

    At home, my spey reels are in a second-hand wood narrow dresser with five drawers. Lightest reels in top shelf, etc. I like that they're not exposed to daylight. For travel, reels in pouches go in a largish rectangular cordura gym bag, with vest, rain gear, and misc. Detachable shoulder strap, pockets on ends. Fits airline carryon.
