While fly anglers work season after season to refine their cast, perfect their lure knots and gather intel on remote locations, skill can only get you so far if you don’t have the gear you need, when you need it. Never fumble for your landing net or wading staff with Gear Keeper® retractable tether products specifically designed for these key necessities.  Always delivering on the promise of quality products with total customer satisfaction, the Landing Net Retractor and Wading Staff Application are precision-made to keep these tools safe, secure and close at hand.

Never worry about lost nets again with the Landing Net Retractor.  The best way to carry your net — handle up and within easy-to-reach distance.  Grab, extend, net that fish and when you’re done – let go, knowing it will retract back into place for your next catch.  And, should you need your hands at a moments notice, just release and the net will retract out of your way.  Made to move with you, the retractor includes a locking mechanism, which keeps it secure when traveling.  Very versatile, it is available with a snap clip mount or a Velcro strap mount.

The Wading Staff Application allows anglers to once and for all keep control of your wading staff.  The smartly-designed retractor keeps the staff at your side, and follows you when you move – whether walking through tall grass or wading through water.  No need to worry about it tangling with your line or around your feet, the retractor sits where you need it and is always within easy reach.  The retractor is available with a combo-mount snap clip/threaded stud or with an optional Velcro strap.

Both the Net Retractor and Wading Staff Application are durably constructed with Spectra / Nylon coated stainless steel cable, and stainless steel spring and hardware.  The high-impact case is built tough and resists against inevitable nicks and bumps taken when outdoors.  Employing a saltwater proof patented flushing system, the unit cleans itself of debris keeping the retracting smooth and hassle free.  A built in Quick Connect (Q/C) system makes for easy connection and disconnection of gear.

The original Geer Keeper system was engineered specifically for SCUBA diving literally born out of a need to secure items in situations when hands are otherwise occupied.  Gear Keeper systems are now available in more than 3,000 configuration options and used in applications from hunting, fishing and hiking to law enforcement, military and trucking.
