Rod Clip+

Rod Clip+

Wearable Fishing Rod Holder

The Smith Creek Rod Clip+™ is based on our classic Rod Clip, but adds a second, alternative attachment method via a sturdy zinc carabiner. Rod Clip+ frees up your hands to tie on a fly, change a lure, bait a hook or show off that trophy fish you've just landed. Our patented fishing rod clips hold your fly rod securely and out of the way, keeping it from being accidently knocked free. Besides keeping grit out of the reel,  Rod Clip+™ also keeps your outfit above the salt and out of the mud. No more having to lay a rod on the ground while releasing a fish!

Free Your Hands to Change a Fly, Swap Lures, Bait up or Show off That Trophy.

Rod Clip+™ is good for all types of fishing and works with most sizes of rods. Putting a rod in and out of the Rod Clip+ is an easy, single-handed operation that becomes second nature on the first day. Rod Clip+™ isn't only for trout fishermen with a fly rod.  Bass, salmon / steelhead, spin and saltwater anglers will also love using them. They’re built Smith Creek® tough from anodized marine-grade aluminum, and the custom-made zingers have been tested on over 50,000 pull cycles without failing. For added convenience, Rod Clip+ has two attachment methods (304 steel pin, or zinc carabiner clip). Even so, they’re compact and lightweight so anglers won’t know they’re wearing a Rod Clip+™ until it's time to use their wearable fishing rod holder.

What is the best location to attach my Rod Clip+™ on my vest?

Try wearing your Rod Clip+ on both sides of your vest to see which side works best for you. For example if you tend to put your flies or tippet on the left side of your vest, put your Rod Clip+ on the right side   Rod Clip+ has two zinger attachment holes so you can reorient the rod opening if needed.

Where is the best location to attach  Rod Clip+ to my fly rod?

We recommend securing  Rod Clip just above your fly rod handle.  This tilts the rod and keeps the line from wrapping around the rod tip .

Should my line be outside the clip when I secure it to the rod?

No.  You can also position your fly rod so the line goes into the clip first, and then push the rod into place.

What size rods are compatible for use with Rod Clip+™?

Smith Creek Rod Clip+™ is designed for use with light to medium weight outfits up to: ½-inch (13mm) diameter and a maximum weight of 1 ½ lbs. (.75 kg). Rod Clip+™ is not for use with big game-fishing, large surfcasting or other heavy-weight outfits.

How long is Smith Creek Rod Clip+™ warrantied for?

Like all Smith Creek fly fishing gear, Rod Clip+™ has a one (1) year warranty against defects in material and workmanship.  If your Rod Clip+™ fails during this period, please refer to our Warranty Section for more information.
