Well to be honest I got the Idea from the euro carp anglers
There rod pods start around $160. and they do work well
I started thinking about it and I belive it works well for my frist and true love Catfishing !
Heres how they work they keep you rod parallel
with the ground if you want and can be adjusted to point the tip into the air aswell
this way the your bait clicker or free spool can peel off with your rod making the ever feard leap for the water
also and my most liked feature is the rod is pointed towards the water so the hook set is faster and eaiser because there is less line out
So heres what I did
I used 1/2 inch but 3/4 will work too
I bought 1 8ft peice of thge 1/2 pvc pipe
8 elbows 6 Ts then you will have to use the pitcures thats posted to figure out how you want to make yours
But i do like it and there so cheap and easy to build and modify anyone can make one
Tight lines DJ
