Does anyone have a do it yourself plan for a rod holder for bank fishing? I of course have the pvc, but around here, the ground is too rocky, so i need something that will go into the ground better. If i could design better, i could almost do it out of something like cloths hanger wire, but it needs to be sturdy? any help?
you can try your local hardware store, ask for a piece of ground rod, it is about 1/2 inch in diamenter, and about 6 ft . long, you will need a grinder to make a point to drive it in the ground, 2 radiator hose clamps to clamp your PVC rod holder on, or duct tape either one will work,
I think tha Catfish Connection has them for sale, like 5 bucks.
Buy some 2 ft sections of 1/4 rebar @ Home Depot.. Use 2 or 3 hose clamps to seat about 14 to 18 inch cut section of the PVC pipe to the rebar. the first 12 inches or so of the rebar is to push into the ground. The last 12 inches tethers the PVC. Voila- Rod holders that are tough & cheap & easy.
Put it in the ground at an angle or bend that bad boy..the other type they have are a pain in the rear to get out of the holder..i set the hook with them still on the pole..just yank the whole apparatus out the ground lol
i have a few of those but we mainly use galvanized tubing cut at an angle and hammer in the ground
2" pvc and then a 2" Y adapter... put the Y adapter on the 2" pvc and then the rebar on the 2" pvc with clamps. cut some of the top of the Y adapter off where your rod will lay in it smoothly. This will give ya your angle if ya don't like it straight up and down.
