Show us your basement fishing rod storage ideas.

I am planning on making a rod holder for my basement storage. Tired of them being in the way and tangled up. I am thinking of wood supports on the side, and wood across the top with pvc pipe for each rod. Maybe a bungie cord across the rod handles.

Anyone have a one they would like to share. Picture would be great.

Yes, The shower. None of our basement compartments have the size for them to fit in unless I break them down Then at the camp ground we store them under the rig, if we need to leave we just place them inside the door lock up and go.
We could always use the trunk in the toad too.

I made rod carrying cases out of white PVC pipe. I have 2. One for rods I take apart. One for one piece rods. Put ends on the pipe and you are set. Reels have to come off. I carry them in a canvas tool carrier. Never broke a rod. Use what ever diameter pipe you need for the number of rods you have.

I mounted a store bought rod holder on the inside of one of my lesser used basement doors, its works great. Take some small bungee cords to help hold them in place when you open the door.

I only carry 3 with me. They stand up in the corner of the bedroom.
With simple eye hooks up on each wall with a bread wrapper tie holding them in.
Has worked for over 14 years so far.

But I don't have another half telling me it looks tacky.

In 4 weeks from today. All of them will be staying outside for 6 days and being used to catch some Crappie, Bass, Catfish and Bluegill .

I used wall mount rod holders and installed them on a bay wall. I'm pleased with how they have worked out.

I will be at Reelfoot Lake (TN) around that time doing the same... May the fishing gods smile on both of us!

I just made individual ones for each rod, 6 from PVC. I use nylon locking ties to hold pairs together and then just stow them where they fit best in the front compartment. Fly rods, handmade, I usually stow in PVC holders with the rods in rod socks under the bed.

To keep mine up and out of the way - I took PVC 6" Pipe and cut a couple of pieces 3 inches wide or so and plastic tied them along the side of the chassis rails at a right angle so you have hoops to hang your poles in. I slide the tip of the rod through the one end slide it ahead to clear the handle of the rod and then slide the handle into the back one....and then I tie it to the PVC ring with elastic "ball" straps....
