The Keeper is a tenkara line keeping solution that incorporates an integrated fly compartment. It is designed to hold two tenkara lines, or tenkara line and tippet as well as some flies for a minimalist and innovative solution to manage your tenkara line(s). This is our most popular line holder.

If you want to carry as little as possible, this is for you. The Keeper will carry 2 lines and several flies, bring your rod and some tippet and you are good for the day. The Keeper is so over built that someone, a rather large someone, stepped on it and didn't leave a mark. My only complaint is that it's a bit large and bulky for me, but the versatility of it makes it a winner.
Это не просто Холдер, это ещë контейнер для хранения мух. Использую два года. Он лучший!
For any scenario or adventure I go on that has water I bring three things:
-The Hane pack rod
-This line and fly holder
I keep line on one side pre rigged up, tippet on the other, about 6-10 flies in the compartment, and for the creeks near my house or on my way home, this is all I need. Fantastic design.
I tend to bring my Rod along for bike camping, or just day outings on the mountain bike. This little design has been phenomenal for allowing me to keep things together while staying less bulky. It keeps the lines in order and is quick to get set up. Would highly recommend.
The Keeper is highly functional. You can keep up to two lines on it at once, and store a few flies in it. If you were going ultra-light, you could take nothing but The Keeper, full of goodies, and your rod, and fish successfully. After using this for a while, I've moved to foam line keepers instead. My only real gripe is that the channels that you wind your line around are very narrow. This is so it's possible to keep two lines on at once, but that sounds like a tangling knot waiting to happen. If you only want to keep one line on it, it's just harder to wind/undwind on this compared to a super simple foam donut type solution.
