Default Re: Stripping Basket: Orvis, bucket, or mesh?

I use both hard baskets and mesh. On the boat or in the salt I use the hard plastic Orvis basket. You have to get used to where you place it on your waist so the line falls in it without much effort and you don't bang you hand into it when ripping your fly.

I have a soft neoprene basket that is good too. I don't remember where I got it or who made it, but it works good in many situations.

I can think of a lot of situations where it is stupid to wade waist deep, but I can also think of many situations where not wading waist deep is stupid
I like the opportunity to wade where I can reach the fish.

Let me clarify for everyone. I live in the Midwest I never fish oceans and I never wade lakes because I cannot. Whenever I am fishing rivers, I do to areas that are below my waist. Those areas I would never use a stripping basket because I think it is stupid to. I never been in a choppy river when fishing because when the rivers are choppy around here, the wind is usually 40-50mph. Please people take posts in previous stated context. If I would go surf fishing in the ocean I would use a strip basket.
