    Default Homemade rod holder?

    I was planning on making a portable rod holder with wood & maybe some pvc, it needs to be heavy enough so it wont go flying into the river yet light enough that I wont get a hernia carrying it. Has anyone made something like this? or have any suggestions?


    thanks in advance

    Hey man, I made a few and I know others on here have too. I used 3" PVC in 2/12 foot pieces and a 3 to 4 feet piece of rebar, attached the PVC to the rebar with hose clamps and it works great for me. - Fishfeen

    Default Can't go wrong with the pvc pipe and rebar method!

    I use the same method with pvc pipe, hose clamps and rebar also.

    On some of my rod holders I use galvanized pipe but pvc is cheaper.

    Those work pretty good, and easy to make. Can also make that part outa 2" PVC or ABS pipe, and then take a 1 1/2'' 45 deg angle with a pipe glued in and stick that in the 2'' pipe and the rod will be at an angle instead of straight up and down.

    Add a PVC Wye to the top with another short piece of pipe out of the 45 side and you can have your rods vertical, on a 45 angle or both!!
