Following up that epic boat gear purchase post with this little tackle box that came in from Aliexpress.

Part of trying to streamline my tackle storage and availability to fit into a waist bag I got that changed how I put together tackle for a session. Using it to sort and store jig heads and terminal tackle so I can just grab it and the relevant lure box and head out.

Started sorting jig heads and lure clips so far, will add swivels, hooks and whatever else I have space for

That looks cool, are you planning on taking it out on the water?
Yeah I'm pretty happy with it so far for $14 - it's small, waterproof and relatively customizable most of what I was looking for. Intent is to have it with me whether I'm out land or kayak based, fresh or salt. Not planning on losing much gear so hopefully won't be pulling it out much haha.

Having all the jig heads already feels like (is) a bit of unnecessary weight to carry - but previously I had them taking up a slot in a tackle box (now given back to lures). How they were organized regarding weight/hook size was just a mess, so this should be a bit more fluent finding the right size to re-rig.
It might be an idea to reduce the number of jigheads you keep in it, I've found that even with waterproof containers wet fingers are enough to get the rust setting in
