Original post made by Dean Tegtmeyer(Lakecat) on June 5, 2004 I have built a new rod holder for my use during fishing off the docks. I built this one to hold three fishing rods and I sewed on two ratcht starps to it. I also put that foam in a can in it so that it would float in case i dropped it in the lake. I just wasnt happy with the first one i biult so I inproved my idea a little bit. I use it the same as I did the first one. Heres a few pic's. heres a close up with a rod in it. Plus I also used the extra staps that I had cut off and made a starp the carry it on my back for easier transportion. Heres a pic of the base. Heres a pic with ti hanging on my bike. Heres close up pic of how I attacked the straps.
