Stripping basket

Recommended Posts

I've been FF for over 25 years I've made a few different baskets over the span just like those shown in earlier posts but always something would go wrong or had to be fixed. The Marine Goop or glue used would eventually not hold anymore or the 100lb mono needed changing especially if opu fish saltwaters. Also tried the insertable cones but found the fly line would sometimes get caught up in the corner at crucial times. So I ended up buying the Orvis basket many many years ago when it was cheaper than it is now. I also used a $25 off coupon they would usually have at least twice a year. I will say it's worth the money as I still use it today. The Orvis basket will last more than a lifetime.
