Pretty much all filled now. But the bulk of the tying is done now.

If you didn't loose as many flys, you wouldn't need to spend as much time tying. whistling1.gif

Another little project. Walmart $7 basket, bag of golf tees & a drill = Boat stripping basket. And at night it'll double as a bear dead fall laugh.gif

It won't have the pegs to keep your line from tangling but the best stripping basket I have is a collapsible laundry basket with a 2 1/2 pound weight dropped in the bottom. Great for the boat because you can pack it down when you move from spot to spot. That basket you made is long gone if you hit 60mph in your bass boat haha!

I've tried ones like the picture you posted and I just can't use those. For some reason I never can get use to such a small opening to strip the line into, that's why I went with the full size laundry type basket. My boat will hit 50mph but I'm not worried about the basket going over. It's a ProCraft fish hunter 180 so it has nice high sides on it so no worries about anything going over wink.gif

The trick is to leave some line still in the basket. Don't cast it all out. That way as your stripping in the line it was to naturally follow the line thats heading down into the basket.
