    Here are a few pictures of my rod holder, I shore/bank fish where it is mostly rocky and can not use a stick in ground type rod holder. I made this one from 1" PVC and can fish it level, 30 or 45 degrees depending on how I put it together and it breaks down to fit in my back pack. If I really need to hold it down I pile big rocks on the feet.

    Thats a good idea. You mite wanna drills some holes in the pipe that lay on the ground and run some tent stacks threw them. You mite hang a monster one day with your back turn. The rod holder and the rod will be gone. I'am not trying to mess up your idea I'am just trying to help you out a little.

    I have thought about staking it down but I'm a clicker guy, If I ever do fish without the clicker it will staked or tied down for sure!

    My hats off to your ingenuity!! Love the easily interchangable multi-angle feature and the inherent rust-free quality of the setup. Thanks for sharing Dutch

    Great idea, simple and functional, but I'd be worried about it getting pulled in.

    Dutch - that is awesome! I bank fish as well and in AZ there are few shores where I can drive a rodholder in - always rocky or solid rock. Your idea is brilliant. Thank you for sharing - I'll be making a few of my own.

    Welcome to the Brotherhood! Thats a heck of a setup right there. AND adjustable to boot! Very portable and light weight. All in all with the use of a clicker I give it a 10 outta 10!

    Dutch Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. That is a sharp looking bank rod holder. Put that in detail and submit it to Whistler to be placed in the members library. Great idea. Reps.

    Thanks for all the comments, I've been playing with the design all summer and so far I like the one in the pictures the best, but there is always room for improvement:big_smile: I'll get a parts list and design drawing/picture and submit it. Thanks again to all. Now get off the computer and go catch some cats!

    Got a little bored and started playing with my design again. A friend of mine likes to have his rod almost straight up and down so this is what I came up with this (see picture), also added a camera mount for those all important self pics when fishing alone.
