So on a different note, I have been inspired by my fellow trash talkers to build a rod rack. Here are the beginning pictures of the creation.

maybe you can take that netted bag and zip tie it and make a lid to keep closed and something to hold your rods on top

Painted the frame in the garage this afternoon and gassed out the house with the smell. Also cut the top plate but cant mount it or the rod holders or the integral pre dawn LED light until the paint cures. I think if this works out I may make 4 of them and get them powdercaoted for durability. Only time will tell Smile

Did ya finish??? Di ya.. did ya.. did ya???

I sure hope there are a good presence of float tube things at this Fly Fishing show today! Other wise, I'd be paying for parking and entrance for my mom and I do know nothing about what I am looking at!

Sweet! Can't wait to see the finished product! I can't to crap at my house.. the power went out to like half the city at 11pm last night and it is still out! If it wasn't for my 4G wireless and my Honda generator, I'd be watching the grass grow.

Did the pool test last night. Rod rack is gonna work fine. Switched out the liner for a removable tray I made from closed cell foam. This way I have a work surface if desired and emergency flotation for the rack without having to attach a bunch of pool noodles or pipe insulation. Injecting pvc pipe with expansion foam proved to be pointless so I ditched that idea right away. This is form and function together. Me like. Pix to follow.

Jeff, how many kids do you have and how old are they? Do they like to fish? If they are old enough, let's take them to NPH sometime on my boat. I use to take kids all the time! We can put them on some fish for sure! Let me know!

Cool man thanks for the invite, my boys are not much for fishing but I am sure a good saltwater fish would change there ideas of fish. My daughter is to young but in the future I think that would be great she is my fishing buddy out of all three.

Sure thing Jeff. If the boys don't want to go, it can just be your daughter and you and I will bring my little cousin. I think they are about the same age.

I changed the rod holders to something in line with the Outcast example. This also features the blue closed cell foam tray to double as secondary flotation.
