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
Looks just like what I was talking about. I just don't have pictures of them. Thanks Man. - Fishfeen

$1.20 ea. Rebar

Got it all at Lowe's
Then I painted them all black cause I had the paint laying around.
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!!
Look behind me in this picture...this is what I did on my toon...
