fishing rods?

ok, im oputting this here, maybe it should be in hobbies,,,,, because some folks don;t understand fishing isn't a hobby. its a religious ritual.
did you know God doesn't count time fishing against you?
anywho....i want to carry a couple fishing rods sort of permenently in the 13 foot scamp.
any really slick ideas for storage and protection?

wife has been interested in learning the saintly art of the flyrod. so i figure i'll get us each a nice little 4-5 wieght outfit to keep with us.

my first thought is a pvc tube, like the cleanout tube is kept in but a little longer.
could attach it to the cleanuot tube holder? or maybe acrossed the bottom of the tongue?
that would hold the rods and the reels can tuck into a cabinet.
i bet someone here has a super cool custom built idea that will blow mine out of the water .

Several people have switched to the larger pvc fence post covers for carrying their sewer hoses. They hold the caps on with bungee cord. Several 5th wheels I've seen mount two under the front. One for a fold up ladder and one for the hose and adapter cone.
These fence post covers have a lot more room than the round tube. They would hold several rods with the reels installed. Or you could use some wall mount rod holders and mount them on the wall behind the sink, then tell your wife it's a new style towel rack.

fly rods

We put the flyrods in the Rav 4 tow vehicle in their case. They are not in the way in the camper and are ready to take to the stream.

I carry mine in it's (their) tube(s) in the closet and the reels and accessories in a small bag. Then it's just a quick switch to the car/truck.

Be a good guy and don't buy your wife "the cheapest" set up because she is "just learning." Depending on what kind of fishing you do and her strength she might be more comfortable with a lighter rod that you are used to using. You can also upload the line one weight to get the rod to load better depending on it's action.

You may know all that..... but I get ascared when husbands offer to teach their wives to fish.

I used a length of "sewer pipe" from "Home Despot", Add the threaded ends and get the screw-on caps/plugs. Attach to back bumper with large U-bolts.

I carried the poles for the awning for my Boler in that set-up

You should mount them to the ceiling, so you can see them when you lie down and when you get up.

That's what hubby wanted to do but the Boler roof is already a head banger for him. Now in the Bigfoot that's a possibility!

If you use pipe say attached to the bumper, make sure there is room for not just your rods but packing (bubble wrap, ect.). The trailer suspension will give things quite the ride. I am not a fisherman myself, though once in a while I pretend to be. Raz

I just draped mine above the window, they rested on the top window sill. I did not ever travel with them though that way. They were up out of the way when camping and not needing to use them

I know Joy A. and others... have put mounting brackets behind the bi-fold screen door in Scamps to hold fishing rods. Out of site and safe place for (perhaps) a custom made asset. Remember, anything placed on the Exterior is available to others that may want to have what you own!

Hopefully Joy will be along to post a picture of her mod... pretty cool!

Actually they are not behind the bi-fold screen but rather on the area between the strike plate and the screen.

The Super Klips come in large and small and then there is one that is not round but more rectangle. You'll find them in the hardware store where they have all the other mounting devises, you know those screw in red brackets etc.

You can see in one picture the large klip it holds the butt of the rod. Then I used several of the small klips to hold the rods in one or two places depending on the rod. The klips in the picture are brown but I used white for obvious reasons.

And, you can see a flashlight below the large klip. It's a small mag lite that fits perfectly in a large klip. It's a handy place for the flashlight.

Here's some pictures:
