      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

What do you use to store fishing rods ?

Recommended Posts

I know it might be a stupid question, but what can I use to store fishing rods ? I thought at a wall gun rack, so they'll rest orizontally, but distance between racks might interfere with reels.

I guess I could build one, but I am very bad at carpentry work.

Ideas ?

Look at your local hardware store. They have u hooks that are for bikes I think. You can then mount them any distance apart you wish on an existing board in your garage.

I simply took an oak board 3.5" wide and 4' long. I ripped it full length so I had two pieces 1.75" x 4'. I screwed them together at a 90 degree angle to form an "L" shape.
I then cut small slots in it every 6". the slots were made in a "V" shape so they were larger i the front and smaller in the back. I can hang my poles by the tips then. I then fastened it to the wall and it sticks out about 2.25". the only thing I would have done different was make it stick out further. 3.5" would have been better.

Check out the hardware store or a big-box retailer for a broom rack - the kind that friction-fit the handles. Hang it high. Put the rod handles into 'em upside down, and then nail 6" pieces of foam pipe insulation to the wall directly under each rod. Reels can face out, and the foam pipe insulation keeps the guides from rattling together. That's during the season. De-tension the line - as a kid I warped my fiberglass rods badly by storing 'em for the winter in the shed with tensioned line - y'know, bowing the rod. Put a nasty twist in 'em.
I store mine in 3" PVC tubes for the winter, lying flat, indoors. Reels go in an old coffee can with the lid on.

Berkley makes a vertical rod holder. I have these mounted in my Ultra Shack and they work great. I have travled thousands of miles with them in the rod rack and had no problem.

I also use these racks in my shop to store the rods in the off season.(I am currently looking at them as I respond)
