    Default Re: Line stripping tray/basket?

    I really like the Linekurv one, but I don’t have space got that in my tiny London flat... Has anyone tried this cheapo:

    Do any sea lads fish just holding their line in 'climbing' coils (loops across the hands, as opposed round them)?
    It does restrict an efficient double haul, but for the most part is easier than the hassle of using a stripping basket (which I personally find a bit annoying/unreliable).
    Certainly, for me, whatever method, fishing with a huge amount of line out in a scenario where you cannot lay it on the ground is very tricky and problem prone.
    It is a real downer on sea fishing, that's for sure.

    I've a line tray/basket but find it prevents me holding the rod comfortably where I've become accustomed to, i also have to put the line into it rather than the line just landing in it of my hand therefore awkward and unused.

    I have tried it and it doesn't work, certainly for me.
    I mainly fish surf beaches, and really need the line to be tucked away in the tray: I cannot afford to take the risk of dropping loops of line, especially if they might then tangle around my legs or under my feet. This latter even more so on rocks.
    So, for me, a line tray is essential for line manangement/control. But it probably doesn't actually help me cast much further: it just helps me fish more safely. And I am happy with that outcome.
