Two Rods


Rhardy
Go to solution Solved by MN Fisher,

Recommended Posts

I am curious to know, if anyone has found a way to reasonable carry two rods when wading? I would like to be able to have two rods set up so that I wouldn’t have to re-tie if I want to fish a spot with different lures. Also there are times that I would like to take both my bait caster and an ultralight set up at the same time. 
 

Not sure if it’s feasible or not. But I figured if it was someone here would know how. 
 

Thanks.

A good wading backpack should do the trick....like this one

Two rod lash-points, plenty of storage.

 

I have their 3600 size shoulder bag for shore fishing...it's well made and very rugged

Looks promising. Thank you.

After figuring out a decent system for this I will never go without having a second rod.  I just carry an old backpack with tackle trays for a tacklebox.  This backpack has a cupholder on each side.  I just put the handle of the rod I'm not using in the offside cup holder and run a small bungy strap to the base of my backstrap strap and it works pretty well.  Can be a bit inconvenient at times if I have trees overhead but definitely worth taking.

I never bring more than one rod when wading in fresh water, unless I'm mostly fishing right by the shore, and then I just lay the 2nd rod on the ground. In the salt sometimes a floating crate thing doubles as a rod holder bait bucket.

Standing in chest deep water in chest waders with that on would never work for me. If i needed to rerig which i do standing in waist deep water that huge pack means i would have to walk back to shore to access the back of it to get out tackle and such.

 

Everything i bring when wading is around my waist in a fanny pack type bag and 2 other bags slung over my shoulder.

All my tackle gets soaked and is under water but when i need to get in them i just pull the fanny pack up my waist and the sling bags just swing them up and out of the water.

When i get home empty em out, stuff dries and for my pliers just spray em with wd-40 and good to go.

I’ve tried to make it work several times, but the inconvenience of re-tying isn’t near the aggravation of trying to carry another rod.  
 

Between the deep water crossing, in/around/under trees, most times I have ended up just stashing the extra and grabbing it in the way out.  
 

On more open water it may work fine, but in our small, often wooded rivers here, it’s downright awful.
