Don't let the stripping thing put you off. I made a big stripping basket I hang low on my left side. I strip all the way to the leader. I shake the head back out to the marker, perry poke and cast. Repeat as needed.
You can see in this photo, it has a waist belt. Hanging down from that are two straps. They are adjustable. At the bottom of the basket is a leg strap. It is basically a holster style basket. The bottom of the basket has two drain holes and weed whacker loops to reduce tangles. All of this, including the buckle on the waist strap I forgot to mention, are available at the hardware store. Oh, and the adjustments on the waist strap and closure on the leg strap are velcro, also from the hardware store.
I have a sewing machine, actually two, and did the sewing myself, but if you don't you can probably find someone who will do it for you. I think it took me 15 minutes tops to sew it all up.
You can see how it sets on me in this video.
