A Portable Shore Fishing Chair with Rod Holders.Using only a 2×10 and no nails I designed and put together a shore fishing chair for when I fish for catfish and don’t take the boat out or for when I fish the sea wall at Port Aransas. It carry’s in 4 parts counting the connecting wedge. I have seen something like this is a old pioneer museum that was used on a wagon train for portable chairs.They said they packed them on the bottom of the wagon floor to pack flat and it was the last thing they unloaded for mealtime when setting up camp. I think someone called it a keel chair but I’m not sure. I was surprised how comfortable and sturdy it is. Now when the weather breaks and its shore fishing time I’m ready or when I have to catch the next wagon train out of Abilene. I make a 3d model in shetchy from Google as seen in the last pic.

Its missing a cup holder though, to put your beer can in when that big one takes the bait!

That’s really a nifty idea. I need to make some of those to go around an outdoor table I made a while back. Thanks for the post.
