Default Re: Rod tube design

What i did for my raft was a 4" pvc pipe then ripped a 1 1/2"gap down the length of it. On the underside where the pipe sits on my raft frame i slotted 2 holes so the buckle straps secure the pipe without interferring with the 1 1/2" gap to lay my rods in. At one end of the pipe 8" from end i slotted a cut on halfside of pipe and heated the pvc and bent it down to lay flat like a tray for reel to lay when attached to flyrod. Bought some 1/4" soft felt from Joannes fabric store and glued it in. All i need is a patent #...jk. Sorry no pics! But if you can picture this style through my description it works awesome and is easier than stuffing your rods through one end of the pipe.
