Alex got 2 double sided ones and had them for about 5 years.
1 is used for normal general hooks and one is used for stronger carp type hooks.
They fit perfectly in the cross draw in my box and are easy to get at at all times, and you can see at a glance if your running low on any certain patterns or sizes.
If you place a grain of dry rice in each section you will also find that if they get wet the hooks do not rust as the rice soaks up the water.
Another good thing about them is that the hooks do not rattle about so they don't get damaged/blunted which they do if kept in the packets or boxes that you buy them in.
Also if you leave them on the bait waiter they wont blow away like the packets do.
They are one of the best extra bits of kit you can get in my opinion they are a must have and not an extra.

Nice one Malc,
Can't really add anything to that,nice tip the grain of rice,alternativly you could put one of the little packets of silica gel in one of the sections(they are those little packets that look like salt you find in some electrical goods)
