In 2009 Scott Hunter started Vedavoo out of his garage, teaching himself to sew on a Craigslist-scored sail-making machine. Over the next eight years the company has grown to employ a small army of seven employees, stitching up American made flyfishing gear out of its Massachusetts workshop. Vedavoo has become synonymous with quality handmade gear from backpacks and sling packs to smaller accessories that make the little things easier on the water and in transit. The Vedavoo River Quiver Rod Bag is another piece of great handmade gear from folks who are proud of their work.
The River Quiver is a padded 4-piece rod carry option for the traveling angler, sewn from American made 1000 denier Cordura. Whether in transit via a beat up pick-up truck barreling down dirt roads to your favorite freestone or jet-setting in economy class for a week of bonefishing, the River Quiver will keep your rods safe and sound until they are ready to string up.
It is much lighter and easier to travel with than large, cumbersome rod tubes and is a great way to organize and protect your favorite rods when not traveling. The soft carrying case can hold four 4-piece rods up to 10-feet in length. It unfolds to reveal a double-sided inner leaf that is stitched lengthwise on each side to cradle individual rod sections like a glove. A Cordura-lined padded foam exterior keeps everything nicely protected and it is fully customizable with your favorite patches.
Once loaded up with rods, there’s two different ways to secure the River Quiver. It can be rolled up like a burrito, making for a super strong, burly bundle of rod protective Cordura and foam. For a slimmer profile, it can be folded to better accommodate packed overhead compartments on full flights, or tiny crevices inside a gear-filled vehicle.
The Vedavoo River Quiver retails for $200 – $220 depending on color options and is available at Vedavoo.com.
