The Ebira Rod Quiver holds your tenkara rod, leaving your hands free for trekking poles or for climbing or photography - or just free. In addition to the sleeve that holds your rod, the Ebira also has a small, detachable pouch that will hold flies, lines, tippet, nippers, forceps, etc. With a pair of Fuji EZ Keepers, your rod can be carried fully rigged, ready to go in seconds.
Please note that the standard length Ebiras are just a little to short to fully enclose most Daiwa tenkara rods or most seiryu rods. Because the Ebiras have drawstrings, they will still hold the rods securely, but about 1-1.5" of the rod will stick out. All the Ebiras now come with black cords as shown in the photo of the Ebira K below. (Rods and gear not included.) More info...Ebira Rod Quiver - $55
The Ebira Plus is essentially a wider Ebira, sewn down the middle to make two separate sleeves so it can easily carry two tenkara rods. Also, the attached gear pouch is significantly larger. If you think the best tenkara rod is actually two rods, like the 13' Ayu and the 11' Iwana, this Ebira is for you. The Ebira Plus now has a wide shoulder strap like that on the Guide model. (Rods and gear not included.) More info...Ebira Plus - $85
The Guide is like the Plus on steroids. It still has two rod sleeves but each one is wide enough to fit two rods for a total of four tenkara rods. It also has two separate gear pouches and a wide shoulder strap rather than just a cord. (Rods and gear not included.) More info...Ebira Guide - $105
Fuji EZ Keepers and any of the Ebiras make a great pair. You can keep a rod fully rigged and have it ready to go in seconds. More info...
IMPORTANT! - The button below is for ONE single EZ Keeper, NOT a PAIR! You will need TWO for a tenkara rod. Please be sure to adjust the quantity to TWO.Fuji EZ Keepers (EACH) - $4
These aren't fancy, but they are light weight, adjustable and inexpensive. Four sizes fit different rods and different numbers of rods. Small fits the Suntech Genryuko, Shimotsuke Kiyotaki, Keiryu-X, Pocket Mini and the Nissin tanago rods. It is 1 1/8" in diameter and is adjustable from 12 to 18". The medium fits just about all tenkara rods other than the Shimano 34-38 ZL, Daiwa Expert L rods and the Ito, and will hold two rods. It is 1 1/2" in diameter and adjustable from 16 to 24". The large holds six tenkara rods. It is 2 3/8" in diameter and is adjustable from 16 to 24". The long is 1 1/2" in diameter and adjusts from 32 to 40 inches.
Please note: THE SMALL CASE IS ONLY FOR THE GENRYUKO, TANAGO KORO, KIYOTAKI, KEIRYU-X, POCKET MINI AND SASUKE RODS. IT WILL NOT FIT ANY OTHER ROD.Small Rod Case - $10
Traditional creels are bulky and quite possibly may draw scorn from other hikers or from other anglers. The tenkara creel packs flat when not in use, holds your catch, can be dipped in the stream to keep it cool, and can be washed afterwards to keep it smelling fresh. (And you don't even have to be a backpacker to use it, either.) More info...Tenkara Creel - $65
