    What are you folks using to store your foot longs?

    Right now I have all my ling flies piled into a couple of clear plastic bins with plastic lid latches at each end. They are about 12" long, about 6" wide and 6" deep. They work ok, but the long yak hair and such loves to get all tangled in with hooks and eyeballs and its sort of a pain. Not looking to dump a bunch of money, just wondering if anyone has any cool solutions to keeping these monsters semi organized and easily accessible.

    I don't have experience with ling flies, but I've begun to store my bass poppers in these, just remove and add dividers to accommodate the length. Kinda bulky because you can only keep 1-2 flies pert compartment, but I'm ok with that.

    You can always just drop each one into a plastic sandwich bag, the throw them in your case.

    I have on of these that I keep some tying materials in, probably only 9" long that I would sell to you considerably cheaper than the online price here if you are interested.

    Plano makes some good boxes that have removable dividers and locking latches, leaving 4 long compartments. Check Sportsman's. They are about $5 or so and will store the footlongs pretty nicely.

    I picked up one of the 8" Fin Sports Wallets at Outdoor Emporium yesterday and it was only $15; it should do just fine for these flies and it will hold more than I'll tie up. They had a larger one for $23.
