From the tying bench to the side of the stream, our annual roundup of the hottest new fly-fishing gear
Quikshot Rod Holder
No matter where you’re fishing, having the ability to quickly switch rods for the situation at hand is a decided benefit, and that’s where the Quikshot Rod Holder comes in. It attaches to your vest or backpack, and uses a strap with a magnetic closure to securely hold a fully-rigged rod and reel in place while you fish with another outfit. That way, you can switch back and forth between two outfits, such as a streamer rod and a dry-fly rod, in mere seconds. Fishpond, 1-866-347-4766; www.fishpondusa.com
