Riversmith intros River Quiver ShortCut with Truck Bed Mounts


From Riversmith:

Riversmith is proud to announce the River Quiver ShortCut with Truck Bed Mounts – purpose built to discreetly protect your fly rods.  The ShortCut River Quiver is a great option for anyone looking to conserve space on their vehicle while still getting to the river faster.

Simply split your fully rigged rod in half and the ShortCut RQ safely stores your rods while maximizing real estate on your vehicle.

“When we initially designed the River Quiver we designed it for full length rods,” said Jason Thomas, Director of Design and Product Development at Riversmith.  “We quickly realized we needed to come up with a solution for different sized cars and trucks.”

With its compact and sleek design, the ShortCut is a perfect option for small, commuter vehicles – and a wide variety of pickup trucks. While the ShortCut with standard mounts is a great solution for all vehicles, the Shortcut with Bed Mount works great on pick-up trucks without rack systems. “Our solution to that is the River Quiver Shortcut – which can be mounted on the roof of a pickup truck or in the bed using our newest mounting option,” said Thomas.
