Needed something to keep the fishing rods out of reach from the “little anglers” (Read: little tanglers). Inspired by Carter’s project here:

I only needed space for 5 rods so I shorten the design. The plan was to put the kids rods in the holder as well but their rods are so short that at a 16 inch spacing the other rods were at too steep an angle. I ended up spacing the racks 32 inches to hit the next stud. The kids fishing poles will fit up there in a few seasons when they get upgrades. The big holes are 2 1/4 as I didn’t have a 2” hole saw. The big holes were slow going on my 8” drill press. Small holes are 1”.

Update: I added a PDF template on my blog Woodified

That out is a great idea. I have a problem with keeping tangles out myself without the grandchildren’s help.

Great project!

The only problem I see is there is only room for 5 rods.

My rod rack is up to 27.

It’s a disease.. :-)
