    Then I thought of this, but using 2x6 screwed to wall with 'pipe holders' on one side only.



    What do you use?

    how many rods do you need to store?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Six at present, then another two when they have had a little/lot of TLC spent on them.

    My fly rods live in wooden cases. Other than that I have a few FG rods but I am not a fisherman despite owning 5 boats and living next to good fishing grounds. Somehow it has never really appealed. Fly casting is more a technical skill than a fishing technique.

    A buddy on Bequia used to store his in the shower so they got fresh water rinses daily.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I went to a flea market a while ago. Bloke had 12 rods in a canvas wrap. 10 each. No reels, but very sturdy beach casters, about 30 years old, various weights. I wanted just one. He wouldn't budge. I came away with all 12. 70.

    I made some rod holders out of some red oak I had laying around.



    there are a couple more like the one above behind my workbench



    And I haven't learn my lesson about not leaving items in my truck, I still have six rods hanging from the ceiling in my 4Runner.

    I like that! I've seen some that are way too fine. I like rustic for fishing rods. It somehow seems more appropriate, or maybe I just own cheap rods.

    I need to update my build thread. I have the frames built and attached to the strong back. Getting ready to attach the keelson.

    the Keelson is 2x6 DF. It is going to take a little bit of persuasion. I've got some nylon straps to assist with the bending.

    Yes, I decided MDO for the sides but DF ply for the bottom and transom, I will be sheathing below the waterline in fiberglass or maybe xynole.
