DIY stripping bowl
« on: May 26, 2012, 02:09:31 pm »
Well its funny how the brain works sometimes, I was walking around the supermarket the other day and spotted a child's toilet step, the shape and size got me to thinking, an hour later and at the grand sum of £$8.00 approx, I had a new stripping bowl which included a rod rest

A place for your fly line when stripping it in.  Helps keep your loose line under control and from tangling when you shoot the line back out.Big bonus when in a kayak,lots of stuff for your line to snag on.

Excellent idea.. I recognized what you would use it for as soon as I saw your first pic of the childs step.. great idea.. cut a couple of belt loop holes and you are in business.. a little heavier than the traditional molded bowl but great all the same..

I personally can't use one on a yak because it would get in the way... takes up a lot of space.. I usually make sure my line falls next to the yak instead of in the cockpit.. I would think it would work the same with a SOT.. on casting out then you can easily pull the line up and as long as your rod tip is high enough you should have no problem with a forward cast... might need to use the double haul method to get it out but if you are using a shooting line then you won't have issues anyway.

For use on the kayak if your limited on space they hang over the side on the carry handle very well and keep your deck space free.

i like your stripping bowl. a good idea and takes up less space than most stripping baskets. i prefer to either use a stripping bowl/basket or strip the line onto my lap or into my yak. i`ve bumped into problems letting it just fall to the side of the yak, stuff like twigs and weeds get tangeled in it, turning little problems into fish losing situations.

they also come in handy on the water if you want to switch from say, a floating fly line to a sink tip or full sink line too.
whoever has the most fishing gear when they die wins!

I use a stripping basket I made similar to yours all the time when surf casting on Cape Cod.
If you are going to use that to surf cast, I would suggest drilling a few holes in the bottom to let out the water in case a wave hits. The weight full can knock you over.

Also a few (maybe 8-10) cable ties pulled through the holes so the ends stick up from the bottom will keep your line from tangling in the basket (separates the loops)

I have seen guys on open deck boats use the round collapsible yard /leaf containers as stripping baskets.
A round piece of plywood in the bottom holds them down in the wind and they are light and collapse  to travel.
