I made myself a line tray the other day. It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make all told. It's made from a Tub Trug and cable tie wraps, total cost 7GBP. I've been thinking about it for a while, I wanted something that hung at the most comfortable level (no comments thankyou Wink ) and contoured to the body. So, one tub trug and a few cable ties later this is what I came up with.
Hope you like it Very Happy
Cheers Dave

Hi Dave!
You just give really good laugh Very Happy No offence! I really admire people with invention(I'm one of them). I saw the thing 1st time on my mongolian trip; orvis with the sticking things inside. The owner told me that it prevents the line from tangle. I hate retrieving my line from the current while casting but the view of this guy, walking miles every day through mongolian stepp with the thing hanging from his ass like nappie full of...Finally I got one for myself-snowbee-reinforced fabric with stiff removable bottom. That was OK until I removed the bottom(just the mesh left) and got the tray under the surface(Welsh Wye last week)line started tangling! This time I turned it back and look like the nappie man. Anyway-tight lines!
P.S
It has the holes so it collects the water. What about moving your tray up and down to prevent it to happen?

Hi Michal, no offence taken! I'm glad I brought laughter to your life haha. Just to let you know the basket works great, although I've sealed the holes and shortened the whole thing making it shallower. I've also shortened the ties and cut two notches for the rod to sit in if I'm faffing about tying on flies etc.
Tight lines! Wink
Dave
