   i prefer less constrained to more constrained, 
and think of fishing organizers and such as more 
constrained and the yellow and orange stackables 
as less constrained and a shallow shelf for screw 
boxes and jars as even less constrained. 
   gus' fishing supply on balboa between 38 and 
39 is great for the stuff you've suggested: wide 
selection and low prices. don't know the hours, 
but caters to actual fishers.
