I have broken a few rods in the back of the truck when it’s loaded with ice chests, kayaks, seats, and gear. This revolutionary rod holder is a patented design that allows the user to move the holder in any direction desired with ease. Many of my early rod carrying schemes were oriented around simply lashing them down, so I would not lose them while launching or beaching, especially when I went out through the surf into the Pacific Ocean. Made with pvc pipe – hardware and a pvc pipe frame goes into the rod holders on the kayak and also help anchor the 2×4 and stablize it. Now, bent the pvc pipe with a heat gun and spray painted in red. I was so happy that I evidently failed to see two folks paddling a canoe get close enough to join in the celebration.
We understand that different types of fishing call for different types of rod holder setups and rigging, and this is why we allow our customers to build their own rod holder systems from the ground up. Check out our pre-assembled packages for our most popular rod holder systems, or build your own to get you exactly what you need. I installed an anchor trolley, some rod holders, and a couple of soft spots at either end of the saddle gunwales.
This fishing rod holder is less versatile than the clamped-on, but is comparatively stronger and more stable. The store bought crate rod holders are really pretty simple, they have typically 4 rod holders around the outside of a box with some having lids. If you’re canoe has wooden gunwales then you will also want to add spacer blocks to the clamp pieces. Ideal for beach fishing with surf rods, or if you are trout fishing in dams – the choice is yours.
The Side Winder is an adaptive fishing rod holder designed for use by individuals with mobility disabilities in one arm or hand. The spacer block is the piece under the rod holder mount and it is there so that you have more wood to hold the larger screws from the rod holder mount. Also, I don’t really like the fact that the rods extend over the cab of my truck.
The best way I have found to do this — and I have been installing rod holders for over 30 years — is by the use of a simple jig that anyone can make. Place PVC solvent cement on the end the pipe in preparation to glue the end cap with foam disc attached into position on the rod tube permanently. At a total of $9.44 per holder (not counting the hammer) you have a good, durable holder that will stand up to fury of a 50 lb blue cat and can be driven into anything but solid rock. Most easily accessible sites have ‘permanent rod holders’ which normally provide a stable rod location.
Edges so 1) you don’t cut yourself on the pipe and 2) you don’t want to mess up your cork rod handles when sliding them in and out of the holder. There’s a few other options available like the Rod Corral from Bert’s Custom Tackle (also available here on Amazon ) though all of the manufactured alternatives I found were significantly more expensive than the do it yourself option and the Cabela’s Quick Stow. Once I had the concept for a seat post mounted vertical rod holder I started doing some research and found an option available through Cabela’s.
