It's a problem, but.....

Here's what I do. You have a cork handle, right? And hooks points penetrate cork, right?

Even when I have a keeper on the rod, I generally place my fly in the cork, especially on the brushy streams I fish and have to walk through. Yes, it leaves the rod handle looking a little "ratty", but I use the same hook hole to the degree possible. And it works better than any keeper I have ever used.

(Besides, rods are for using, and catching fish, not for looking pretty!):hehe:
