I have a similar problem in that my line always seems to be under my feet. I try to be cognizant of this issue and avoid twisting my feet while standing on the line but........ pooh happens. I've considered wearing a stripping basket since my line management skills aren't the best. Cortland 444.
Can you put a big plastic bucket on the seat or the floor in front of you?Thanks for all the suggestions so far.
Yeah, I try to be careful too, but there's not a whole lot of room to stand in my 8' pram. I also considered a stripping basket, but it seems like it would be awkward to sit down with it on. I mainly fish standing up, but occasionally fish sitting down, and also have to sit down while rowing. I don't want to be taking the thing on and off all day long.
I considered that too and I may have to give it a try. On a typical day I'll cast in all directions from my standing position in the rear of the boat; at least if the line's in a bucket it won't be hooking around my feet as I'm pivoting around.Can you put a big plastic bucket on the seat or the floor in front of you?
