Fishing Rod Transport

If you were like me, you just stuck your rods in your basement storage kinda on top of everything else...

Well, I got tired of worrying that they might get broken and having to remove them to get to other stuff they were laying on top of....

Soooooo...

I came up with this solution:

I took six 1" dia PVC pipes and cut them into 6' lengths.... (I'm only traveling with six rods) I then cut four cross pieces (see pic) and zip tied it all together. Painted it all black and I then zip tied the entire unit to the two raised rails and I now have a way to transport six fully rigged rod safely and out of the way....

That's great! I have the same problem. Tell us...are the cross pieces cut out to accept the rod tubes? It looks like they may be. How did you do that? Thanks!

Nice job.

I was not that fancy. I just went to the hardware store and purchased two 8' sections of plastic, square, downspout gutters. Cut them to the length of the pass through, stacked them against the forward compartment and put two rods in each gutter. They could also be mounted to the upper rails

Yours look a lot fancier.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Yes.... Crosspieces are cut to accept the tubes.... I did a little "engineering" in order to make the cuts...

I clamped the crosspieces between two 2X4's and then used a 1 1/2" hole saw in a drill to make perfect cut outs... Be sure to put a piece of wood under the PVC or it will be really difficult.... (experience is always best teacher)

Tried to glue it all together with PVC cement - nope, wouldn't work - thus the zip ties....

The two middle crosspieces are placed so that they line up with raised rails in basement....
