1. An apparatus for the storage of fishing lures through the eyelet of the lure comprising:
a peg, having a constant cross-sectional profile elongated along a longitudinal axis of said peg from a proximal end of said peg to a distal end of said peg;
a wire having a proximal end and a distal end, with said proximal end of said wire transecting said peg;
said wire having a proximal portion within said peg and a distal cantilevered portion extending from said peg;
said wire having a diameter-increasing element along said cantilevered portion;
said diameter-increasing element having a diameter greater than the diameter of said wire;
said diameter-increasing element affixed to said wire,
wherein said diameter-increasing element having a diameter that retains a lure when the eye of said lure is disposed over said wire and said diameter-increasing element; and
a mounting surface;
said mounting surface comprising a plurality of apertures;
said apertures having a cross-sectional profile that matches a cross-section of said peg creating an interference fit, wherein said peg is retained within the aperture.
