Perfect Rod Carrier For Long Distance Travel

I have been an avid fisherman for a long time, but typically I have stuck to old fashioned spin fishing. About a year or so ago, I decided to give fly fishing a try. I had to see what all the fuss was about, so I started small.

I was browsing the internet and found Trouts Fly Fishing. I was planning a trip in the very near future with friends to give fly fishing a try on the Colorado River, and figured I’d start with renting gear from this company. I made my arrangements and was all set for when the trip began.

The trip was a great success, and I was pretty well hooked on fly fishing. I was happy with my rental gear, so when I got back home I made the choice to use Trouts Fly Fishing for all of my fly fishing needs. I had a good amount of time before my next outing, so I got things in dribs and drabs, and educated myself more on the subject in the meantime.

I practiced my new skill at local rivers to get a better feel for it, before really preparing for the next big trip, which was to Montana. I wanted to be a little more confident in my new hobby, because supposedly Montana has some of the best fly fishing that the United States has to offer.

It was a nearly 700 mile trip that we would be taking, so my next step was to prepare for transporting our fly fishing rods. Because it was now a trusted destination for me, I visited Trouts Fly Fishing, and started researching the Riversmith River Quiver Rod Carrier. It was exactly what my friends and I needed to embark on this journey.

When it arrived, a buddy of mine and I set it up. It was a fairly seamless job. It fit perfectly on the top of my truck, and the rods went in smoothly. The real test was going to be this long road trip.

The morning we set off, we double checked to make sure that everything was secured and ready for the road. All looked right and we were ready to get going. We had about an 11 hour drive ahead of us, so we were really hoping everything worked out well.

On our first stop, about 4 hours in, everything was in good working order. No weird noises and no shifting around on the roof. So far, so good. The same was true for the next stop, which was about another 4 hours in and 8 all together.

We were at the home stretch, and from the inside of the vehicle, all seemed to be going well. Then the terrain changed when we were reaching our final destination and I got a little nervous. As it turns out, the nerves were for nothing because this carrier did not budge.

I highly recommend this company and this product for any fly fishing needs. They will be a trusted source for me for as long as I’m involved with fly fishing.
