Works great for your paddle, a fishing pole or to secure your Yak-Stick Mud Anchor. When you are paddling and want to rest your paddle, the bungee strap makes it easier to secure your paddle quickly. When I am fishing, I always keep my active rod right next to me. If you see a tailing fish, rather than turning around to grab your pole and taking your eye off your target, it is right by your side and easily accessible. For Canoers, it lets you keep your paddle on the outside of your canoe and gain extra room where it counts. This set comes with 2 Paddle Keepers and all the hardware you will need.
