Default Dropper rig storage

I was out at settles bridge fishing and met a guy named Wes who lived close by and I noticed he had a dropper rig storage spool looking thing which I thought was a great idea. When I got home I went to look for one online and haven't been able to find one. Does anyone pre-rig droppers? If so, how do you store yours?

Im thinking about making my own with a piece of copper pipe insulation or pool noodle or maybe even take a piece of foam block 3"x6" and cut slits on opposing ends to make grooves for the tippet to sit in. Ill post some pictures on my results whether store bought or homemade.

Check this out...

http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/foru...d.php?t=102263

made version 1 using a long piece of foam and a kids pencil box. Version 2 is what is shown in the above post. That orvis box looks nice but seems its always on backorder.

I used foam I found laying around the in the wife's stuff (shhhh!), that seemed exactly like the foam in commercial fly boxes.

Grooves work well for the tippet as you mention. You can actually get a lot of flies in here, more than I show. The box is a little too big in the width, but keeps the flies from getting crushed.

Ironically, I don't use the box a whole lot...even though its in my vest now. Someone else made the offhand comment that they tie very quickly on the river and I took up the challenge and now do almost all my dropper rigging ad-hoc.

Default rigrap

Academy (Cumming) carries the rigrap. Although they don't have many. Two in the closeout section (end cap) by the guns and one in the trout section. $6.00.

No, you wrap it around the tube and hook it into itself.
