Roving single rod sleeve anyone??

Does any tackle company do a single rod sleeve that holds a 5000 size reel not big pit size. With a pocket or 2 for bank sticks and net handle. Want a sleeve for protection due to brambles etc. small river one rod fishing but with a bit of added protection?

This is what I normally do when roving with one rod, the rod is make up and protected with tip top, this hold-all has space for my bank stick, landing net and even the chair.. If I am fishing for chub, it also takes my small unhooking mat.

Perfect. Two banksticks on one side, landing net pole and rolled up net on the other side. Full length zip, minimal padding, lightweight and can slip into a quiver if you need your brolly.
That looks like it could be the one!! Thanks Paul. Even got a little zip pocket to chuck a few leads in!

It's surprisingly good for £20 Neil. I have two now. The handles are just right. Carrying just one is so much better than a quiver unless I need the brolly

I have a Drennan, which also doesnt have a shoulder strap, bought a strap that is designed to fit around rods, which did OK but prefer just the handle to carry it. Can squeeze made up rod,Drennan pole, plus couple of banksticks and a fold up net.

I use a regular Drennan Super Specialist padded sleeve and attach the landing net handle and bank sticks using 2 scaffolding ties. A mate put me onto the idea and its simple, yet brilliant:
