The 27 and a rod sock

by Jimi Fly
(Warrensburg, MO)

I've always been told I do things bass akwards and now I'm sure of it. Just purchased your Shimotsuke rod sock and the Medium rod tube as well as some of your Dr. Slick Hemostats. When I first saw these items in your store I saw what I had been looking for.

I have been thinking a quiver would be great for Tenkara/Tanago rods for quite some time now but really nothing I have seen strikes my fancy. So in true bass akwards style here is a photo of my new quiver and I guess a new product you could offer (sort of). Your rod sock fits very nicely over your medium plastic rod holder. I used some string I had from an old canteen simply tying it to the tube and bam there you have it my new quiver. I carry the Kiyotaki 21 and the 27 in the tube. The rod sock makes it soft on my back instead of just a rod tube. I hooked the Hemostats and nippers to the front side for easy access. Add the line spool and top it off with your small fly box with the little eye hole. It may not be what was intended but it sure works great. Give it a try

That's definitely thinking outside the tube. Nice DIY project.
