Here’s a quick tip for you if you drive a truck…

When most people go fishing, they just toss their rods in the bed.

That’s an easy way to bang up your rods and reels as your truck rumbles down the road.

Good video….. one question….. is there something that is securing the pvc to the bed of the truck?

Hi Tony,

Good stuff! Add a screw in eye bolt on either side if the rod butt rest and use a short bungee between them to keep the rods firm against the pool noodle. I also use small pieces of plumbing pipe insulation around the rod to keep the them separated so the don’t rub on each other. I put it on just behind the securing point of the tie which also keeps the tips separated. Hope this helps. (Yes, I am a little fanatical about my equipment!). I also have and sometimes use the fine mesh plastic rod covers.

I love the rod holder idea for transporting rods in the back of a truck. Could you supply some deimensioms, how tall, wide, etc.

Nice tip. I use those same tie downs when I’m carrying the rods on my roof rack, they work great. Good point on using them on the tips of the rods too. I’ve broken them before by having them slap against each other.

I use hanging rod holder straps. One end has loops for the butts and the other has velcro loops to hold the tips.

They keep the rods apart and I can tension them to hold them over the kayaks. If I only have a couple of rods, I can put them diaganoal and still close/lock the tailgate. Works well for me.
