    This is the new rod holder I made for fishing from the bank where the ground is too hard to push in regular stakes. It's all aluminum and really sturdy. Unscrews into three pieces.

    looks really good as is but it might be a good idea to add a bar on the bottom to help prevent that sudden snatch over the holder when you least expect it

    I just wish that "Bass Pro Shops" or "Cabela's" had something like that at a good price, I would get one in a second.

    PK go to a flea market and see if someone will sell you one of there folding legs that they use for table legs. They look almost identical to that rod holder.

    Charles, I thought about that. The problem for me is that I would have a problem getting the rod out to set the hook quickly. I fish mostly at night and if you're not using a baitfeeder its tricky getting that rod out in a hurry.

    I was asked to explain how my rodholder was made so here goes. I started with a 7/8" aluminum rod about 15" long. I turned a slot in both ends about 1" wide for the rods to set in. In that rod I drilled and tapped two 3/8-16 holes at a 20 degree angle so the front legs would be spread apart. The center leg is drilled at a 60 degree angle back from the front legs for the tripod effect. The legs are made from 3/8" aluminum rod threaded on one end. The front legs are 34" long and the center leg is 28". This made the holder the proper height to set my rods up at almost a 45 degree angle. It's easier to see the tips at night when they're high enough to catch the light from the lantern. :big_smile:

    I reckon I'm the redneck in this forum. I carry 3 shepherd's hooks.

    Then that is all I needed to hear, your rod holder isn't worth squat. I made a real nice one and it has only caught one fish! Would someone post a rod holder that catches fish?:lol: I am sick and tried of these non productive holding contraptions and it is about time they punch their time card and start pulling in some lunkers.

    Seriously though, you have given me an idea that would make for a nice holder. :cool2:

    Jason, welcome to the BOC:0a25: I hope as the weather starts to get a little better I'll be able to carve a few notches in the old rod holder:big_smile: At least I got two bites on the river, it sat in my living room for a week with narry a nibble:lol:
