I went to a KMART twelve years ago and bought two Rubbermaid Dishpans on sale for the price of one. I found a good rubber bungeee cord, with plastic coated hooks, on the road that night while driving to the salt to fish. I heated up the tip of a phillips head screwdriver and pushed the hot metal point into and through the plastic pan rim at each corner, making four holes about 3/8 inch dimeter. Just to annoy my Hoity-Toity Yale Anglers friends I slapped a big Orvis logo sticker on one end and went fishing. I have been using that basket ever since without a problem. The whole deal is about thirty five dollars less than Orvis or LL Bean.
