Default Re: Homemade rod carrier

Last season I made a rod carrier I use on my cataraft as well as my jeep. It is made with 2" plastic piping (black). I then got pipe insulation 1/2" tick. This leaves a padded opening of 1". Enough for my cork handle/etc. I cut a portion of the pipe away (see picture). I have small bungee type cords attached to the 2" pipe (before I inserted the foam padding). that hold the reel in place. This system keeps the full length of the rod protected while driving on the many dirt roads we have here in ID.

I painted the tube grey so it would not get so hot in the sun....
