    Here's a cheap rod holder that's been proven over the years. It cost's nothing to make. Works well and can be tossed after use with no harm to the environment.

    I guess you could say that rod holder is "the real McCoy"

    That is actually a double purpose rod holder. If you take hold of it by the short lengths up by the "Y", one in each hand and turn your hands kind of over the top you now can locate water. It really works, look out at the end of your pole and what do you see? Water. Nuff said.lol

    :lol: That's TJE classic rod holder!! Hard to find them in the stores, that's for sure. They do work fairly well, but if you leave them on the bank they usually aren't there when you go back to that spot.

    Hey Grumpy, have you thought about patenting it. McCoy's Riping Rod holder.
