|Fishing rod holders take the inconvenience out of fishing for a
variety of reasons. For one, it is a convenient storage device
especially when one is in a kayak. Rather than holding the
paddle in between the legs while fishing, a fishing rod holder
stores the rod in place therefore enabling anyone to carry
multiple rods or (if one insists so) carry multiple paddles. It
also makes trolling easy as a holder keeps the fishing rod in
place as one travels to a number of fishing spots. Also, when
unhooking a caught fish, rod holders keep the rod secure. More
importantly, they help one catch more fish at the same time
enabling a kayak look versatile and extremely well-designed.
Here are some tips that could prove helpful in order to
determine the types of fishing rods one should purchase.
To attach or to not attach
There are basically two types of fishing rod holders, one that
could be attached to the exterior of the kayak and one that is
put in the flush. Both have different functions and both work
well accordingly. The choice all depends on what one prefers to
use and how.
To those who prefer the unattached
The unattached type of fishing rod holder comes in two forms,
the straight and the angled. Most kayaks use the angled form.
When this type is used, one has a good chance of being able to
stroll because the rods veer away from the kayak.
To those who prefer the attached

rod in the middle of the kayak and therefore works best in
keeping the rod in storage. This straight type of fishing rod
holder is good for the Tower and Cobra Navigator model of a
The home-made fishing rod holder
One could just as make his or her very own personalized fishing
rod holder using common PVC. Or one could also start out by
getting a milk crate and attaching it to a kayak with the use of
The alternative type of fishing rod
There is another type of fishing rod holder that could be placed
just above the kayak. These are usually tubes that are called
RAM as well as Titelock. As the latter's name implies, it locks
the rod in place and usually consists of a male and a female
part. This part difference allows the two to be separated.
Manufacturers that generally make this type of fishing rod are
Attwood, Scotty and Roberts.
