Looking to make rod holders (storage) for a weel house...I need ideas please

Recommended Posts

Looking to make some rod holders from wood just for storage when not using the rods and for travel going down the road. Does anyone have any pics they want to share of what they have built? Thanks!

I just used the Berkley vertical rod holder mounted on the wall, 1 set near the front and 1 set in the back

was in a shack this weekend, the rod holder was nothing more than a 2x4 with holes drilled into it on the corner of the wood at an angle. It held the rods in tight and out of the way. Wish I would have gotten a pic.

I used a scrap piece of oak about 2 ft long and mounted short pcs of PVC tubing to slip the rod handles into. Drill 2 holes big enough for the screw head to go through and on the other side the holes are the size of the screw threads. If you need a pic I'll take one tomarrow

Why not pieces of PVC the size a rod handle will slide into screwed verticle to a 1by4 screwesd to the wall?

I'll get a better picture of the actual rod holders this weekend. Here is what I did:

My top bunk folds roughly in half (the long way). Only the front half flips up, which keeps cushions, sleeping bags, and pillows in place for travel. Under the non-flippy side I left the 2x4's open to below, and drilled 1 1/4" holes for the handles in one 2x4, and 3/4" holes for the tips in the other 2x4. I have space for 5 rods on each side of the bunk. Works great!

Here's what we have in the front of our shack. Just two boards with matching holes.

If you don't have a lot of rods you push them up from the bottom thru the top holes and set the handle in the bottom holes. If you have a lot of rods you do it like the pic. We also have a Berkley foam rack in the back of the shack. It is kind of hard on the noodle rod tips though.

Ferny.

I found this idea from another site so it isn't mine, but I like it. I hope the owner of the pics doesn't mind me sharing.

Very cheap and should work well. You said you wanted wood but you could use a couple pieces to screw your eye bolts and hooks into to make it look a little more finished.

Here's a design that I have used in some of my custom finished Yetti's. Really simple if you have a table saw and some spade or Forstner bits. holes are spaced 3.5" apart and you can space the top and bottom pieces to fit your style of rods. Its easy to make and customize and holds rods tight when traveling and doesn't take up much room.

Not the best picture, but you get the idea. My goal with these rod holders was to not use any wall space so the underside of the bunks was the perfect place. These work great.

For now the ugly plywood is exposed to the underside, but I'm going to fill it in with tongue and groove once I get the house back home next weekend.

With the luck of my fishing crew the guy sitting closest to the wall would stand up and catch his head on one of the hooks left on the rods. Then the rest of us would spend the rest of the weekend arguing whether that counts towards the biggest catch contest for the weekend.

    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
