Sounds more like poor planning... I just make sure I have what I need before I go fishing.

Rofish, anyone who wants a portable clears his lures not just in a shop; so the addiction part is definitely a prerequisite . Btw, you can buy transformer that converts car DC to AC and run than motor while you are driving towards your fishing destination too
I used a portable almost like your design b4 but I used exacto knife handles to hold the lures. Problem is in a moving car with the other side of the lure hanging free, they tend to want to fall or tilt out of place so I added a second wheel with rubber bands as shock absorbing holder

LaPala, thanks for your ideas. I'll have to think them over
As to the problems you had with your previous dryer, I can assure you they do not have a chance to show up in mine. Exacto handles are long and heavy, while my lure holders are short, light and very powerful. They would not tend to fall out or tilt, even in case of a big earthquake, because the handles of the lureholders are pressed into holes I made in rubber gasket material.

wow lots of good ideas here,more than one way to skin a cat so to speak.Mine is very simple I use a heavy duty actuator motor use in hvac for controlling louvers,It could turn 50lbs of lures if need be.... I will post a pic later.

It's not the holders tilting rofish, it's the lure themselves. Especially the longer minnow lures and lipless lure.

As I said, my lure holders are very powerful. They can clamp a crankbait very strongly, by the wire eye. So my lures won't tilt in my lure holders. True, for bigger lures, a dryer with 2 discs to attach the lures between would be a more convinient setup. My lures are no longer than 8 cm, and I think my dryer could handle lures up to 10 cm (4").
