We see a lot of broken fly rods over the course of a season. Although we’d love to dish out stories of huge, rod buckling fish, the majority of the time rods are broken getting in and out of a boat, sticking them in a ceiling fan, or other less glamorous ways. Safely storing your rods to and from the water is important in protecting your equipment.

We’re constantly searching for better ways to transport our gear while on the water and our own Whitney Gould has come up with a clever solution. Check out the step by step on how Whitney stores her rods safely and fully rigged!
