The best way to tether your staff when fishing. Keeps staff handle at your side for easy access, yet out of the way so you are not tripping on it or getting your line caught on it. When needed, simply grab the staff handle for wading stability. The preferred mounting is to stud mount the Gear Keeper to a wader belt. The Q/C-II Lanyard remains on the staff and can be easily connected to the Gear Keeper for use. Grab Your Staff, Use It, let It Go. No More fumbling with your staff getting caught around your legs or not being able to easily grab it. Turns a staff into a completely useful and beneficial tool instead of a hindrance. Made in USA.
