Closing the handle hole

Some fly fishers that like to wade extremely deep may experience water going in through the handle hole. This is normally no problem as the stomach and the wading belt blocks this hole when the stripping basket is in place. But if you want to block the handle hole it is quite simple as you just place a piece of gaffa tape across the hole. In order to avoid exposing the sticky part of the gaffa tape, you may place one on the inside and one piece on the outside of the basket. This is a simple trick that works very well.
