That is a really good idea Rich!

I have left rods on the roof of truck caps twice. Funny how this thread helps me to remember an 8' 6 weight Fenwick in 1977 that after being left on top an El Camino's cap. It was hours before I realized I didn't have it and dark. The rod was recovered in more pieces that I could count. The second one was just last June. It flew onto the berm and I was able to get it and the reel back unharmed. The only damage was to the face of an Odyssey reel that was on the rod. I had an extra spool to pop in the cage and it was business as usual after changing over the line. Close one
