Just a simple little block of maple(any hardwood will do), about 3”x5”x1”. About 7” of welding rod, 3/16” stainless in this case. Three holes to drill and one small notch at top. Lightly sanded. Blend with small amount of Danish oil and Viola!, the handiest thing you can have for river-bank fishing! Oh, and an old 5/16” rod in bottom. Keeps your pole safe and sound and frees up both hands for helping the kids, grand kids, or whatever. So easy and compact to stow away! Even holds a cigarette or cigar in notch while holding rod in hand!! Dual purpose I reckon!! A true epiphany! My old holders were made from 1.25” PVC and quite bulky to pack and carry. Now this one fits in the same chair pouch as my rod and chair! Grab it and go with a small Plano 3640 box and you’re all set! SWMBO says i need to patent this but I guess it’ll be too late now! Got to get a dozen more made for all the kids and fishing buddies now!
