Below is a photo of my "investment" lure storage. The box has held up well for about 15 years. Not sure what I'll do if it starts to deteriorate. I've looked around and think that I may have to upgrade to a plastic box. At the moment it's OK and I expect to get a few more years out of it.

Mully offered to sort the lures for me. The thought of a crow-eater ratting through my prized posessions was too much for me, so I removed them from the box, today, photographed them and returned them to their favourite cardboard box (about the only thing that I didn't find was Dr. Who). Maybe I should be more concerned that bullrout knows where I stash the box!

I do have another storage device - might pull that one out tomorrow - it has security locks!

Cheers

Very nice Travers droolsmilie

I like the plastic bags and cardboard box setup, part of my state of the art system too! Although my wife spoilt me recently and got me a plastic "chest of drawers" from one of the cheap shops, so it's pretty flash now thumbsupsmilie

If ever you decide to let the George Dempster lures come home to Queensland you know who to contact howdy

I am a bit like you guys. Plastic box in the shed. thumbsupsmilie

Ahhh! Plastic drawers. I didn't think of that. Great idea clapclap

I was going to wait until tomorrow to unveil my second 'storage cabinet' but, Tony, you've forced my hand a little bit earlier than I'd planned. Note the ability to secure the cabinet and prevent lures from being stolen (if only I could find the key!). Note also the vintage of the cabinet (now, we left "Beggan Beggan", Harden in 1972 - it must be ...... very old). Pity it's full of modern plastic lures. Bugger -duh crazysmilie

Cheers

Enlarge the pictures?? Bullrout only showed me how to make them smaller, so that they would squeeze on to this forum. Bigger? Is that possible?

I'm using Photobucket to reduce the size of the image, but they all seem to come out the same size. Any suggestions?

I take pics at about 1meg each. I open the pics in Paint application then stretch/skew them at 25% original size and save them which ends up around 50-100kb size. This allows them to be uploaded quick and I either use the upload section on here or link them through another webbased photo site.

same pic uploaded on here. 48kb size both.

Hey two-bob, I think I'm making progress!

We're probably getting a bit off topic here - except, of course, that these are the lures in storage. We're OK!
