Who would've thunk? This thing looks pretty good. I often carry a single-hand rod and a two-hand rod so I can get my trout spey casting fix. I think I'm going to get one and give it a try.Here is what I use:
Perform like a Pro! Secure this belt clip rod holder to your wading belt, pants belt, waistband, waist pack, or really anything you desire.

I know a guy that had a rod stolen there doing the exact same thing . Just food for thought .I will sometime carry two rods, one rigged for nymphing and the other for dry flies, when fishing on the San Juan.
It is mostly open and it is pretty easy to find a place on shore to leave one rod while you fish the other.
Still, it can be a hassle. If I work my way up or down stream with one rod I constantly find myself back-tracking to get the rod I left on shore.
It saves you from having to re-rig if a hatch starts, but if you have to traipse to shore to look for your rod and then wade back out into the river I'm not really sure how much time you really save.
