ORVIS – Fly Casting Lessons – How To Use A Stripping Basket

Pete Kutzer of the Orvis Fly Fishing School demonstrates the best way to use a stripping basket, which helps control your line and keep it from getting tangled. It also makes it easier to cast because you don’t have to fight the tension of the line on the water’s surface. If you plan on fishing in the saltwater surf, flats, ledges and even from a boat, a stripping basket can really help you control line for longer casts.
