    Default New SKB Product - Stripping Basket

    Yet another new product has been added to the SKB collection

    Priced at 49 including postage, it is 30 cheaper than the Orvis alternative.

    Bob's Basket

    Bob's Basket. Exceptionally strong plastic fly-line stripping basket with 8 raised line prongs for keeping your fly line in order where wind, tide and/or undergrowth are a problem. Shaped to sit on the hip. Far more comfortable than a converted washing up bowl!

    Dimensions: 38cm x 25cm x 10cm (approximately).

    Comes complete with adjustable waist strap and lanyard type retainer.Ideal for fishing in the sea and also for the more overgrown canals and lakes when hunting freshwater predators. It can be drilled for additional drainage for on-land applications.



    Cassette Reels starting from only 60
    Trout Fly Lines starting from only 19.99 when part of a multi buy discount
    Trout Flies from 40p
    And much, much more at Fish SKB

    Thumbs up Re: New SKB Product - Stripping Basket

    just a question shouldnt this have a groove on either side of the basket so the rod can rest on it? looks nice though if i fished somewhere i didnt have to crouch and slide down bankings i would be tempted.
    got a fishing rod for the girlfriend!! best swap ive ever made!

    Now that does look good for bank fishing
    Better a 'has been' than a 'never was' !

    We are awaiting a second batch with this modification which was requested but failed to materialise on the initial samples. For predator use on land it's not a major issue but we do understand the advantages of the rod notch in high surf.

    I have something similar in my kitchen sink. Is Gordon Fraser still around ? If so, ask him for the design of his line tray

    would totally look after lines lying on ground for example so you don't get it under your feet etc i would say that is an advantage

    Protects your line and the spikes help prevent your line from tangling when casting

    Good looking product but 50 for a 'bucket on a strap' Chris? Price point of 30 and you'd sell buckets of them imo

    Due to their size, shipping costs to get them to us and postage costs to get them to you are very high which pushes the price up unfortunately.

    Looks magic and perfect for the Bank and keeping the line off the ground.


    Saves the fly line and the rod from all that grit and nastiness flying through the rings.
