Hard-To-Find Leaf Bucket Stripping Baskets

March 28, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

We get a lot of inquiries about how to construct low-cost stripping baskets for use when fly fishing from a boat. Until recently, you could stop by most Target or K-Mart stores and pick up a collapsible gardening basket that could be easily modified into a stripping basket (see our article “Leaf Bucket Stripping Basket“). But apparently these aren’t as easy to find as they used to be. The good news is that the Fiskars Web site still has leaf buckets (or “gardening baskets“) available online.
