Daiwa Presso Lure Wallets

The Daiwa Presso Wallet (C) comes in four sizes - small, medium, medium large, and large. For now I just have the small and medium in stock.The (C) suggests that this is the third version.

The photo below left shows that the small wallet easily holds ten Vega spoons or eight of the Adam or Lupin spoons on each side.

The small wallet would also hold eight of the 2.5g Crusader spoons on either side but I would recommend replacing the barbed Crusader hook with a barbless hook first.

Dimensions are 3.5" x 4.5" x 1.25" for the small and 3.5" x 7.25" x 1.5" for the medium (although they may be a bit thicker when full of spoons).

There is a clear plastic sheet separating the two sides of the small wallet, and separating the sides from the middle foam sheet in the medium wallet. The small wallet comes with the carabiner shown in the photos. Hanging the wallet from the carabiner will keep the spoons from getting all tangled.

It is much easier to pick a spoon out of the wallet than it is to pull a spoon out of one of the plastic boxes shown further down the page. The boxes will hold lots of spoons, but it is a bit cumbersome to get out the one you want.

It turns out that the Daiwa Presso Lure Wallet actually works quite nicely for plugs, too, if you replace the factory trebles with single hooks. Barbless hooks are recommended, as the barbs do  chew up the foam.  The small size will hold 10 minnow lures, up to about 60mm. The medium size will hold 20.

TenkaraBum Silicone Fly Box

They're called fly boxes because they were developed to hold flies. However, it turns out that they hold single hook lures very well indeed. I bought one to try out and was quite impressed. The silicone holds hooks well, it doesn't lose its shape (so it will continue to hold hooks well), and it repels water.

The top of the case is clear, so you can see your lures, the hinge is stainless steel and there is a positive catch so it won't open unexpectedly. I have them in two sizes. The Large is 7 3/8" x 4" x 7/8" and the Small is 4 1/4" x 3" x 3/4".

Several micro spoons in a silicone caseThe box will hold lots of micro spoons.

The large box will hold up to 49 micro spoons (if they are all the smallest spoons, like the Rodio-craft Blinde Flanker .5g, the Forest Chaser .6g or even the Daiwa Eve 1.2g spoons). With a mix of larger spoons like the Daiwa Crusaders, Smith D-S Line or Shimano Slim Swimmers, it still will hold lots of spoons. I believe the medium will hold up to 30 of the smallest micro spoons and the small up to 22.

The TenkaraBum Silicone Fly Box also will hold single-hook spinners like the Smith Niakis, Smith AR-S and Palms Spinwalk.

It even will hold plugs like the Daiwa Silver Creek Minnow, although I would highly recommend that you replace both trebles with single hooks.

One of the best things about the TenkaraBum Silicone Fly Box, which sets it apart from the Daiwa Lure Wallets, and the C and F Micro Spoon Pallette I used to carry, is that you can use barbed hooks and they will cause absolutely no damage to the silicone slits. Also, I find it much easier to get the single-hook spoons out of this box than the boxes that have compartments.

Meiho Fly and Lure Cases

I guess we can forgive Meiho for thinking this is a fly box rather than a lure box. They call it the Meiho Fly Case F but it makes a great box for ultralight lures.

It is extremely versatile in that each of the four long side to side compartments can be divided into two, three or four compartments to fit the lures you have. The Daiwa Crusader, Adam and Vega spoons will fit in one of the smallest compartments. The Yo-Zuri Single Hook Pins Minnow or Daiwa Presso Step Darts, or the Daiwa Dr. Minnow lures (not yet in stock) will need half the full length, and longer minnow lures would need three quarters of the length.

The box fits lots of lures and yet still fits in a fishing vest pocket. Dimensions are 5.75" x 4" x1". Not bad for $5.25!

Lures not included.

Meiho Lure Case SS showing dividersMeiho Lure Case SS

The Meiho Lure Case SS is a relatively small case, 4" x 3" x 1", that has four removable dividers. There are five possible slots in which to put the dividers, so there is quite a bit of flexibility in setting up the case.

I would probably use three of the dividers, making four compartments of nearly equal size. Set up that way, each compartment would hold one 50mm minnow lure. Each compartment would hold two of the Daiwa Silver Creek 44S minnow lures or two of the Daiwa Step Dart 40S lures. Additionally, each compartment would hold several of the larger spoons.

Meiho Lure Case SS - $3.00

The Meiho Fly Case SS is the same size as their Lure Case SS (4" x 3" x 1") but is set up differently. There is a built-in divider that splits the case into two long compartments. There are six removable dividers. Using one of the removable dividers, you can set up the case to hold a small collection of spoons, spinners and minnow plugs, making it a very convenient minimalist lure case that fits in your pocket.
