Where I work we use dessicant packs to keep moisture away from the product we make while they are being frozen. Well today it hit me that these would be great to stick in a fly box to help prevent hooks from rusting, especially over the off season. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out the pic and the link below and you'll know what I mean.

Great idea Alex, every time I get something with those or silica packs I toss them in with my materials. Why dont you send me a few, I can put them to good use for sure. I also keep one or two in my guitar case. Are you still playing?

Great tip, I have a few in my gun safe and it works like a charm.
