Cup hooks could also be put on the bottom of the shelf to hold lures by using clear monofilament line if necessary to ‘tie’ the lure to the cup hook.

What are the advantages of a wood display case?

First, if you have more than one, you can stack them. They are reasonably light so handling isn’t a problem. They have locking latches and come in an assortment of sizes. Unfortunately, they don’t come with a backing so you have to create one yourself. Because of the thickness of the case, you must use a backing that is relatively thin and also, it must be a firm enough material to retain T-pins which are used to secure boxes and lures. The backing I used, ,can be purchased at most home building supply outlets. I cut it 1/4" less one each side than the size of the case, i.e., a 20" x 14" case would have a 19-1/2" x 13-1/2" backing. The 1/4" is necessary to allow for adding nice material surface to the backing. I my case, I used green felt material. I cut the material about 2" oversize to the backing. I laid the material on a flat surface and centered the backing on it. Then I just folded the edges over, cut the corners, and secured the material to the back side (duct tape works quite well!). It should fit fairly snugly into the case so it really isn’t necessary to fasten it in although you could do so using double-sided tape or velco.
