I purchased a used Native 12 Ultimate this week. I took it out yesterday for the first time. I laid one my fly rods that was broken down into 2 pieces in the back of the yak. It slid under the seat at some point and I broke the tip. Not the first, second or third time I've had to use the TFO warranty.
So, in order to try to minimize the chances of breaking another rod I figured I would invest in some fly rod holders.
What make and model fly rod holder do you use? How and where do you install them? Any preferences on direction, location, things to consider would be appreciated.
Note, I spend a lot of time in heavily tree lined creeks so vertical mounting is out of the question. I also have to be concerned when pushing through tree limbs, etc. so I expect the ability to point them forward or straight out the back of the yak is critical.
I'm sure I can learn a lot from your mistakes and maybe limit a few of my own in the future
