    I saw something today that I have never seen before it was a rod holder in the back of a guys truck it was at an angle that put the rods just above the tail gate and the reels where fimly attached at the other end of the rod. The guy has fly fishing equipment (rods) on his and was rigged up not something that looked like he had bought has anyone every seen anything like this or would you be interested in trying to make something like this for sale.....

    sounds like it would be easy to make with pvc pipe and a board to hold them

    yea, saw something like that the other day. It was in a guys blazer, hanging off the ceiling from side to side. It looked like about a 1" fabric strap with velcro loops. keeps the rods about 4" apart. Should be easy enough to make.

    and well worth it if you got a truck or suv,
    Ive had mine for years and love it, frees up all kinds or room.
    Just be careful with leaving hooks or lures on poles.

    I am still looking for some kind of rod holder for my Explorer. Right now I have a bungee cords stretched across the interior roof area and my hooks are always hanging on the ceiling and its just a big dang mess, lol. I don't want to spend a 100 bucks on one either although I have seen some nice ones in that range. I guess I ain't creative enough to come up with something myself as everything I have tried was a big flop!

    Hey willis check out basspro or catfish connection they probably have it too.
    The thing I use in my Explorer is called Vehicle Rod Carrier by Rod Saver.
    Item# 21 394 338 00 basspro. about 17 dollars, and holds 7 rods.
    Its been well worth it.

    I think it would be really easy to build out of PVC all you would need is a four 45 degree angles and some fittings it was cool but i didnt have the camera to get any pictures of it.

    I made this one and it works great. Easy to load and unload with or without the rods strapped in place.

    Very Nice Buzz that kinda what it was but the rods stuck up at about a 45 degree angle that is a nice one you got there though. I might try and build on like that I think i like it better.

    mine sets on a plane above the height of the sides of the truck bed. This enables you to utilize all space beneath the rods. You can also use the bottom of the frame that sets directly on the bed to hold items in place that might slide or roll around. It is approximately 24 inches wide and I can fit 8 large rigs comfortably and securely.

    Thanks Derbycity. I will check that out, probably go ahead and buy it if its only 17 bucks before I end up tearing up my headliner or worse, my rods, lol.
