    Simple Fishing Pole Holder

    I needed something to store my fishing poles in so they don't get damaged. I had some building materials left over from a remodel that I put to good use. I used 3" Schedule 40 rigid conduit (you can use any 3" inside diameter pipe) that was about 4 inches longer than my longest fishing pole.

    To seal the ends, I used a 3" screw in test cap on each end. This allows me to access either side to get to the contents.

    Then, I screwed some Velcro straps to the frame to strap the contraption in place. Now, my poles are safely stored, and I'm taking up very little storage room in the basement. Best of all, I had all the materials laying around, so I didn't need to buy anything.

    We have two fly rods and three spinning rods in it now. We're heading out next Monday for three months of trout fishing throughout the Rockies.

    Jim,

    Give us reports on how the fishing is at your various locations. Years ago I had a Springer that traveled with us and would go fishing with me. He would patiently wait for me to catch a fish. I sometimes gave him a smaller one and he would eat it head first.

    Being in the Rockies for trout fishing or anything else is about as good as outdoor adventures get. Jim--I am envious. My sister lived in Longmont for more than 30 years and one of my best high school buddies has lived in Loveland for 35 years or so. We spent considerable time in the mountains over the years and treasured every moment !

    Man I miss stream fishing for trout with a fly rod. Grew up doing that in PA. Never got a chance to head out West and try the streams there. Maybe something I can pick up again once I put this whole job thing down for good.

    If Jim is anything like me, his favorite fly fishing stream is "NOTELLUMCRIK". Can't wait to get back to it in a few weeks. Grew up fishing the Madison and Big Hole before they hit Outdoor Life in the 60s, so there was no waiting on line to get in the river for some combat fishing, and no drift boats either. Of course all the river banks in the state were not private back then. Dad started fishing there right after WWII. Glad I was young when I was young. I now go to the only secret spot I know of and catch 12-15 brookies all day long out of the canoe.. the only access to the crik.. that is spelled correctly BTW.. C R I K. In 15 years on that crik I've never seen another person - moose and bears and mule deer, yes, but no two legged critters. I've taken a few pals in there and so far have been lucky - none of their bodies have been discovered. Kidding! Even my sons-in-law know to wait til I'm dead to bring their pals in there. It's a mile of water as the crow flies but probably 3 or more with the meanderings, channeling, undercuts galore and water soo clear, but deep enough you can't see the bottom in many places. Oh-oh, I'm rambling.

    Selfish or what? Not trying to one up anyone, just sharing the passion. Nothing finer than a nice trout on the proper sized fly rod, no matter where you are. Brown's to the current and the bottom and the rainbow ballet. Still have Dad's bamboo rod that got me my first fish on a fly in the Bear Trap Canyon of the Madison at about 8 years old.

    Have a great trip Jim. And thanks for the rod holder idea.

    We're in Las Vegas right now celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday. Then we're heading for one of our favorite trout waters on Monday. It's Flaming Gorge Reservoir along the Utah/Wyoming border. The fishing is supposed to be red hot right now. We love that we can park our FW right on the water's edge.
