Fly-Rod Car-Van Rod Mount DYI

with one comment

We look at the Rod Mount Pro, and though it appears to be a high quality product, we did not see it fitting well in the van.  So this is our (Judy’s) first attempt at DYI using bent-modified coat hanger wire mounted in plywood wedged into the molding-roof at the rear and pool noodles string across the back.

The unit works well, and we want to the make the following updates:

  • Rear holder – Wider U that can hold 2 rods on each side and a quick velcro tie-in.
  • Thinner pool noodle, to reduce rear-view blockage (really do not need the bottom).
