I have seen all sort of display & storage variances over the years but have always found that the tubes stand with a slight tilt in a corner just fine. The only thing I do special is to keep the tops of the tubes having cane rods loose. The really amazing thing is how they seem to have reproduced since the late 1980's, back then there were only a couple but now there are a bunch I'm keeping those Spey rod tubes very close to one another and hoping that they will get me a nice little 6/7 weight rod for grayling fishing.

I keep my rods with their reels in rod and reel cases. That way they're ready to go on a trip or just as importantly to practice casting in the yard. If there's a downside to this, besides purchasing the cases and reels, please let me know.

Go to rods on the walls so I don't have to mess with tubes and socks all the time. The rods that I have no idea why I bought are in the closet in tubes

Default Re: Rod Storage

I'm still working on coming up with something better. Right now, I keep my pack rods in a violin case fitted with foam inserts. I like being able to keep the reel on the rod, and I also dislike having to thread rods down a tube.

I kinda like those fishpond carriers, but I don't like spending over $100 for storage.

I built this as last winter's woodworking project:

It's made from Colorado beetle killed pine- that's what gives the wood the blue stain.

These hand cut dovetails took a while, but they were worth the effort.

I have added two wonderful Sweetgrass bamboo rods to this collection since these photos were taken.
