Personally I feel that the stripping basket is fly fishings hottest accessory. Both functional and attractive no fashion concious fly rodder should be without one.
1. They keep your line from tangling like Fabio’s hair in front of a wind machine.
2. Anybody that will wear what amounts to a dishpan around their waist is obviously comfortable in their appearance…..and their sexuality.
3. I almost always meet hot chicks while wearing one. Okay maybe not meet, more like gawk as they go walking by on the beach. (note: Police Officers are not there as match makers)
4. You can always say that you’re pushing out your stomach to help keep the basket in place.
5. They make your butt look smaller. That’s probably not true but I’m leaving it in anyway.
6. They give you a great spot to place your hands for that “I’m cool but disinterested” pose.
7. Stickers, you can pimp out a stripping basket in such a way that even an East L.A. low-rider would blush.
8. Distance, everyone knows that longer is better.
9. Their muted colors go with everything!
10. It’s a much hotter accessory than the Murse.
