    One more vote for Linekurv. I love mine and one more vote for no holes.

    anyone know if the Linekurv basket is sold anywhere from south seattle and beyond. Outdoor Emporium, Sportco, or Puget Sound Fly Co? I'd like to pick one up before next tueday.

    Interesting...I was in the Avid Angler about a week ago picking up my new rod and didn't see them. I ordered mine directly from Linekurv in Denmark http://linekurv.dk/en/ . Was $58 including shipping and took about a week to get here. Used it for the first time this morning. Peninsula Outfitters in Poulsbo also has them listed on their website http://www.peninsulaoutfitters.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=278

    OBTW, I should probably introduce myself as a newbie on the board. Have been lurking around here for awhile but haven't felt that I had anything to add until this thread came up. I'm not entirely new to fly fishing, but have only just recently decided to try it in the salt. I've been fly fishing for trout for a few years now, but finally realized that I live much closer to Puget Sound than I do to any decent trout water. It's certainly easier to get out on the water 5 minutes from the house instead of driving 45+ minutes away. Thank you guys for all the great information on this board.

    Welcome aboard.
    Just talked to Ben at Avid Angler has them in stock.
    I was going to buy one when they first came out, but the exchange rate killed the deal with it being nearly $100 with shipping back then.

    Peninisula Outfitters in Poulsbo always has the Linekurv in stock as does Gig Harbor Fly Shop if you're on the west side.

    I made my own. No holes and no belt. I cut a bungy cord in half and knoted the ends. If it fills up with water it falls off. I used wine corks that I rounded off the ends and attached to a cat litter box with Stainless screws and a little hot glue. I think the stainless screws cost the most.

    Just talked to one of the gentlemen at Puget Sound Fly Company in Tacoma. They also have the Linekurv baskets in stock for $59.00. I'm going to pick one up there.

    To me a stripping basket is a hugely important tool for effective beach fishing. I never leave home without it.

    I don't know if a stripping basket would help you shoot line better, but it will surely help you with line management.

    Got one, a Hello Kitty decal with a patch over her eye. Great karma.

    I just made a new one as I didn't like the first one I made. Ikea stool with 1/4x2" machine screws through the bottom. I took screw protectors and cut the end off of them and slid them on the screws superglueing them in place to cover the entire screw length. Coated the whole screw assembly with rod building epoxy. Going to test it out on the beach this week.
