Some of this crowd might be looking for a hiking staff/2 piece rod holder. I've seen some in the past but the sites vaporized. Recently I found this, and a review on Gear Talk. With some difficulty I tracked Tim down and these are indeed still available ($80 approx. w/shipping). He's working on a new website (flyrodcarrier.com) but it's not up yet. He may be emailed at: email@example.com. I know that you could build your own out of PVC for a fraction of the cost, but a nice piece of kit. I hiked for many years with a 3 piece (in it's tube) when that was considered a multi piece. It was more like a cane and I realized a 2 piece in a good tube would actually be more comfortable for walking, and useful for decents and stream crossing.
