    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.

    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.

    As you can see I also drilled holes in it just in case I need to use a bunge cord to help hold it. I haven't needed to yet I been using just fine with out bunge cords.
