Rig winders are great for holding light rigs that habitually tangle into infuriating balls of fuzz if packed ‘loose’ in standard rig wallets. Here are two products from Tronix and Ian Golds that solve the problems of carrying and organising a sensible amount of foam winders.
Tronix Rig Winder Box
More than a year ago PSF ran a review on the excellent Tronix rig winders which suggested that some kind of compact storage box or rig organiser was high on anglers’ wish lists. Tronix got in touch to discuss the idea and soon delivered the Tronix rig winder box. This simple rectangular four-compartment box measures 30cm X 12cm, and houses 20 X 6.5cm standard winders comfortably.
Various small items like packets of hooks or swivels, spools of Amnesia and bait elastic etc. can all be tucked neatly into this box, keeping them to hand when fishing. Made from tough clear plastic, the hinged box is hardwearing and not prone to cracking when dropped. The lid is secured by strong plastic snap-latches.
Tronix Winder Box price: £4.50 from Veals

Ian Golds Rig & Spool Case
Another excellent rig and bits storage option is the Rig & Spool Case produced by Ian Golds. These padded fabric winder/spool holders are multi-functional and slot neatly into dead spaces in box-seats or rucksacks as if by magic.
Ian Golds cases hold 10 Tronix winders each and are perfect for carrying spools of snood line and shockleader, as well packets of mackerel feathers. These well made cases fasten with Velcro and come in different colours… that’s handy when it comes to identifying different sets of rigs at a glance.
