    got bored today sittin in the shop waiting on dad to bring me the parts i needed to fix the new car.. found some rebar and steel tubing.. threw these together in about 25 mins, hope they work..

    rebar is 5/8" bout 20" long... tubing is 2" diameter 1/8" wall thickness, about 3 inches long

    only thing i got left to do is spray paint them bright orange so i dont trip over them in the dark..

    all you need to do now is add some fins on the bottom to keep them from turning. I have made some just like that and when i put the rod in it, it spun in the ground like a wind vane. Other than that your ready to go.

    Looking good Kyle. Like Danny suggested add the fin at the bottom to keep it in place. WTG and thanks for sharing.

    You could try welding them to angle iron instead of re-bar, that ought to keep them from spinning. Buff 'em out on the wire wheel and add a coat of primer and you'll be set.

    I'm thinking of another type of holder where I can lay the poles flat on the ground to keep the wind from moving the pole & line so much. It'll help to detect fish bites better. I'll post something after I work on 2 ideals.:wink:

    I feel your pain man. Did the once while fishing shallow for carp. I was dizzy for about 2 minutes. :smile2:

    Kyle, I don't know if you seen River Monsters last night but you should make some rod holders like he had, those were nice. :eek:oooh:

    Here are 2 photos of a rod holder that are wind resistance. I've not tried it out yet but I will before Rocky Point. I used a 2x4x39", (3) tool holders & (2) 10" spikes. The project is self explanatory.

    I have some that I made with aluminum angle iron and PVC that work really well. They're very lightweight and I can store and carry them in an old folding camping chair bag. You could fit probably 4 in the bag- I have 3 of the pole holders and a small folding tri-legged stool in the bag.
