    The nice thing about the sea level stripping basket is you can buy an extra bottom and ring. You place the second bottom at the bottom of the basket and fill with water so there is an inch or so of water lubricating your line and you can dip your fly in there to keep it wet so it does not sit on top of the water until you start stripping it. The extra ring keeps the second bottom from floating upward out of the water. The water also weighs it down so it will not blow out of the boat. You can leave your rod in the basket as you go from spot to spot. Now that I have one I would not be caught without it!

    If your fly is out of the water long enough to dry out you need to find a spot hat has more fish to cast to :dance

    I was in your favorite spot. The guy in front of me kept feeding their tails so I moved back 100 yards. But I digress. Keeping the line lubricated adds distance to the cast.
