You Guys Spend way too much time on accessories just go fishing
This Danish built one has intrigued me some.
Wow, the Danes make some goofy hats!
Seriously though, that is really cool. Kinda pricey at 71USD before shipping. This video shows it in action: Link
Thinking drill holes in a chunk of plastic and plug/glue using 150lb mono?
This looks interesting, I've seen similar custom versions. I would worry about using it when the wind is blowing though, could be a real problem keeping your line out of the water.
So I looked at the link earlier and when I got home I tapped the iPad and all it said was "flexi stripper"
Weed whacker string works really well. Melt the end to ball it up and pull it through pure drilled holes. Works great. The Ikea stool is awesome.
It takes less than an hour to make as opposed to spending $60+ in a store....worth it in my eyes
.....and I have plenty of weed whacker line
They aren't just an accessory. If you fish the beach as often as some, they become a necessity, especially if the water is gunked up with seaweed and driftwood or if there is moderate wave action.
Steve always I am the the most cheapest about buying anything or spending hours to to make something that I spend only a seasonal amount of time on to sit in the back of the closet for 85% of the time. I did not say a basket does not have purpose just a basket of any kind works.
The posts make a huge difference if your casting long enough to have a bunch of running line in your basket..... maybe thats not a problem you have.
I always cut 40 to 50 ft off all my fly lines to insure I can cast into the backing so i never have too much in my basket most of the time the fish are only 15 ft away
Don't do much salmon fishing I'm guessing?
