    Hell Kitty.

    I'm holding out for the 'Sailor Moon' themed stripping basket. May. Just have to make it cause I haven't seen Simms or Orvis make it yet. ;-)

    PSFCo does have good affordable baskets.

    Try putting 1"-2" of water in your baskets. The line will float freely, rather than being stuck to the basket and itself by surface tension. You'll have fewer tangles and can get more distance.

    I keep telling (more like reminding) myself each time I'm trying drag up intermediate line from the depths and tide swings for casting, that I need to get one. I really don't saltwater fish that much...maybe a dozen or so times/year.... and about the time I get serious to complete the task, I don't. So, I fumble, dredge, untangle, bitch and mumble to myself while fishing. Most figure I have tourette's syndrome and that leaves me plenty of elbow room...always an upside.:)

    Good call. I've got an American flag mudflap girl sticker around here somewhere that needs a good home.
