I assume many of you now own or plan on getting one of the FISHLAB roller bags.
I’m always looking for ways to store more stuff in the tackle boxes or bags…
I have both the larger and smaller roller bags … one for those 2-3 day bluefin trips and the larger roller bag for the 8-12+ day trips …
I discovered that a Flambeau 3009 Tuff Tainer is 12”x 4 1/2” x 1 1/2” in size and they fit quite nicely in the tops of both bags … they fit a little tighter in the smaller sized bag, but with a little adjusting they fit fine … I bought mine on the big “A” using prime for $9 each.
The other plastic boxes have a lip you can grab ahold of and pull them out, but my larger bag has a larger bottom box with no hand hold… since that’s where I store my spare boat anchors I pop riveted on a piece of an old nylon strap … now all I have to do is pull on the strap and out comes my heavier flat-falls …
Then another “Too Much Time On My Hands Idea” … I had two old pvc plastic 1 1/2” one black one white … I cut a slot with my hacksaw then heated a steel rod and smoothed out the slots … one each side … these tubes (plumbing drains) now fit in the rod holders on the sides of the fishlab bags … when I get in a hurry changing out jigs or thing I may be using a special secret weapon I store them in the two tubes … if you look I have/use a large ziplock type plastic bag in the fronts of the two net bags that I store all of my tools in … it keeps the salt air off of my pliers, crimping tool, you know more stuff…
It’s been working for me … these 12” 3009 Flambeau long boxes are great …

Not sure what size a 3700 size box is …
The 3009 is 12x4.5x1.5 … you can fit four in the top of the larger fishlab bags … I have two of the 3009’s in the top of my smaller fishlab bag … and look at my photo … I have two other smaller plastic boxes next too the longer 12” boxes …
You can adjust the dividers to fit wider boxes…
Just don’t buy boxes wider than 4 1/2” they’ll be too tall to close the flap … the back opening toward the flap hinge is a little tighter getting the longer 12” boxes in and out, but I do it …
