to add to f1's recomendation: Only strip off as much line as you'll need to cast.
Check your line often and make sure that the front of the
line is on top of the running line.

If you are fishing with a buddy, tend each others line.

Never step on the line.

Keep a short loop out of the tip (the loop should be no
longer that the boat so it does not get fouled in the tabs).

Did I mention to only strip off as much as you need to
cast (not necesarily as much as you can cast).

A flyline tamer works great, but not very portable. I don't
think I would want to use a stripping basket (I get plenty
of that on the rocks at home).
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
