Features & Benefits
River Quiver Design
Considered to be The Best Fly Rod Roof Rack on the Market. The River Quiver sports superior functionality and strength in all its details and at the same time conceals its technological superiority within a sophisticated exterior design. The River Quiver is understated, sleek and timeless. It compliments all vehicles from the roughest off-road truck to a shiny luxury SUV to a fleet of professional fly fishing guide or fishing outfitter vehicles.
The River Quiver is designed to fit most commercial roof rack systems. In fact, Riversmith engineers haven’t yet found a commercial rack that doesn’t fit.We completed a thorough review of multiple brands and styles of rack to make sure there were no limitations with our product. If the height of crossbars is over 1 3/8” it will require extended bolts.
Durability and quality were top priorities when developing the River Quiver. It is a product built to last - our engineers have made sure of it through endless testing. We are so sure of the quality and durability of this product that we offer the “Locked & Loaded” limited lifetime warranty free of charge; we want your customers to feel 100% comfortable transporting their gear with the River Quiver.
The spacer kit is available for configurations that require the River Quiver to be mounted higher than the standard mounts allow, such as a car with a spoiler or lift gate. This gives it additional space for the River Quiver to fit securely on the vehicle while not being intrusive. Most rear gates can be cleared without a spacer kit as long as you measure for installation with the gate open.
Our Standard Mount can be upgraded with custom locking bolts. This lock system consists of unique bolt heads and matching key. The mount lock further secures the River Quiver to a roof rack, providing additional peace of mind that your gear will stay where you left it. Additionally, the Quick Release Mounts do come with a unique keyed lock and the Low-Profile Mounts include security bolts for additional convenience and security when mounting your River Quiver.
Extended Mounting Bolts are used to fit larger than normal roof rack bars. If the height of crossbars is over 1 3/8” it will require extended bolts. These bolts are an extended version of the standard mounting bolts that attach the River Quiver mounting bracket to your roof rack. They are 1'' longer in case you have installed a Spacer Kit with your River Quiver fly rod holder or have larger than normal crossbars. We also have the high-security version of the Locking Extended Mount Bolts.
The short answer is yes, but it all depends on the cross-bar system you have on your vehicle. We have three different mounting options that will accommodate all different roof rack styles and your specific needs. To read more about these mounting options, please click here.
You can most definitely keep the River Quiver on year-round. We designed it to ensure you can have your rod rigged at the ready no matter the time of year you are fishing.
The River Quiver can accommodate spey/switch rods with a minor tweak to how the reel sits on the rod. Simply connect the reel on the back butt section with either a reel cover or rubber band. When you arrive at your fishing destination all you need to from here is to re-attach reel into the reel seat and you are off fishing.
Yes, most SUV's with a hatch require the RIver Quiver to be mounted with both brackets on rear half of the coupler. This is okay and does not affect the functionality of the unit.

And, oh yeah, it's all packaged in a sleek and sophisticated design that makes you and your rig look pro.
