(The “assorted hooks” are twelve hooks of different sizes ranging from 3/4 inch long (5 each) to 2.5 inches long, with three 5/8 inch long sinkers.

Leaders are 2 each of 2 different sizes, with swivels and snaps.

Needles are 8 straight needles in pairs, looks like six upholstery type and two garden variety.

Needles and Safety pins are on gold and red material (to use as lures). Spoons of course are the lure and not the soup variety.

Pretty spiffy, and very tightly packed. smile
