Line control is one of the biggest challenges facing fly anglers, but with the new Total Control Stripping Basket from Charlie's Specialties, you can get a handle on it. This lightweight line-management device folds up to stow away neatly in the dry-storage compartment of your boat or the bottom of your overstuffed kit bag. Made from Duromesh nylon, the basket allows water to escape and offers little wind resistance. It makes casting much easier, regardless of whether you fish from a boat or by foot. $41.95; www.flyfishbasket.com
