    I want to buy a stripping basket but don't want to pay 50$ plus tax. If anyone has one that they don't use and would like to sell let me know. I could also offer some custom flies for trade. Anything you like, I've been working on patterns for salmon off the beach lately. Also it needs to be the type of stripping basket that is a plastic tub with cones inside. Thanks.

    Honestly just make the IKEA one. Took me maybe 10 minutes and cost all of $5.

    That's a great idea and all but I don't feel like doing all the leg work to track all the parts down. I work about 14 hours per day. Ill just buy it. Still looking for one thanks.

    A plastic dish pan or similar recepticle plus a bungie cord will suffice if necessary.

    I know they do but I'm trying to avoid spending 60$ on a plastic bin. If I don't find anything ill make my own.

    Steve what did you use for the cones? The sharpie caps aren't a bad idea but I'd like the cones to be a bit bigger

    Plastic champagne glasses with stems cut off, conical paper water cups epoxied over, screws with caps, screws covered with something smooth, so many options, just get creative.

    I also want to buy one, if it only cost $5 for the Ikea one, I'll pay someone $20 to do it for me. I have a belt.

    Get on Orvis's mailing list and when you get a $25 off coupon, go get one of their stripping baskets. The homemade ones are OK, but the commercial ones are very nice. I realize you're hesitant to spend $50 on one, but it's lrss rxpensive than a fly line and will last longer!

    For another $25 you can get a commercial one that is ready to go and will be a superior to a homemade one...been there, done that. :)

    I'm on their mailing list and never get those coupons. Is there a trick to it? How often do they come around?

    ua,
    I seem to get a coupon about once a quarter or so. I believe if you call Orvis and ask to be put on their mailing list, you'll start receiving the coupons as well.
