Thanks Andrew.   I like the strip magnet idea.  I spent half my time picking hooks and wire forms up off the floor; or looking for the wire forms on the floor that were hiding amongst all the plastic debris.   As usual, I was over complicating things; contemplating drilling holes in the mold for small round magnets.

CTom mentioned using the magnets in another thread...and it dawned on me that I had some down in my fly tying area. I use them to hold the hooks I'm using and I was hoping it was thin enough to work on the bottom of the mold. It was!

I own a few Shawn Collins molds with inset magnets and they do work well to hold hooks in place.
I am guessing this mold would also be well served to have magnets in it too.
