The original Pleskünas stripping bucket design was created by Stan Pleskünas in the early 2000s and has become the go-to stripping bucket for the scrupulous boat fly fisherman. If you know anything about Stan, you know that these stripping buckets are bomb proof.

Stripping buckets are the unsung hero of those who want to shoot their fly line to Timbuktu in order to facilitate an extended visit between fly and fish. Sometimes it takes a long distance retrieve in order to entice a fish to chomp on the fly and the Pleskünas stripping bucket will help you out here. Yet, stripping buckets don’t get too much attention nor are they featured in the grip and grin. But if you know, you know and if you know, then you’ll reach for the Pleskünas.
