Appreciate they feedback.

This summer I stopped at 3 fly shops in Denmark to purchase one. No luck. I guess I will have to order one direct and have it shipped.

Linekurv.dk

I have experimenting with a number of homemade and manufactured baskets and I am still in search for the perfect one. I have been using a foam Mangrove which is I like - packable, light, large holes in the bottom, rod holder works well & keep line properly coiled. My only problem is when a nice sized Pacific Wave smashes it just right the bottom pops out.

I was thinking a formed plastic basket may be the ticket.
Also thought it was cool in was made in DK where I have family ties.

Appreciate any information.
I do not, but........................

While staying in a guides cabin at a lodge a week ago I noticed something. The cabin is not the Ritz and there were some items cluttering the corners. One of the items that drew my eye was the curved tool caddy that comes with some Shop Vac and other vacuum cleaners of similar design.

The tool caddy was just like the basket in the picture and could easily be transformed into a stripping basket with a good form fitting hip contour thing going on.

Appreciate the tip. Now I have my eyes open for a shop vac tool caddy!

I live in Denmark and has been fishing for seatrout 4 years now. I have no experience with linekurv.dk but I use a Lawson linebasket.
To say the truth I don't like line baskets, they take too much space for my line hand to move freely (I like to take long strips) but because the current will take the line if I don't use it, I have to use it. I don't want to stand with 35 loose coils in my hand or mouth, so it's one of theese things you don't like, but accept it
Orvis line basket is ridiculous priced. 600 danish kroner. That's over 100$ My Lawson is 299 kroner. Half the price. Is it better? Don't know. Is it smaller? Don't know. But linekurv.dk is the same price as my Lawson.

When I returned to the States I checked out the Linecurv web site. There were dealers listed from a number of countries but no shops in Denmark were listed. I thought it was odd. They will ship for a very reasonable price.

At this time, I am going with the basket made from a step stool being discussed in the stripping basket thread.

Mine was made from a plastic basket I bought in a 5&10 while enroute to fish. I bought a bungee cord for a belt. The bungee worked good-the basket stayed put but was easy to slide around my middle to get it out of the way- which was good since I had to constantly move it while climbing around on the jetty. The solid bottom made the addition of zip-tie "fingers" very easy, I wish I could see thru it better.
