While there are a lot of nice fishing rod carriers from small brands on the market, rooftop juggernaut Yakima brings unique designs to this growing segment. The DoubleHaul carries up to four fly rods, or two fly rods and two spey rods. But two design elements set it apart. First, the DoubleHaul carries rods on their sides, cradling reels so they don’t pressure the rod, line guides, and ferrules. Second, the DoubleHaul telescopes from 6 to 10 feet, so you can carry long rods or shorten it for daily driving. It will sell for a premium price of $699.
Rooftop Fly Rod Carrier
The versatile DoubleHaul offers premium gear protection for up to 4 rigged-up fly rods—which means more time fishing and less time rigging. This deluxe rooftop rod carrier keeps rods safe and fully ready to hit the water.
- Designed for side placement of reels to reduce wear on eyelets
