Easy storage for a setup to keep in your car........

Recommended Posts

I like to keep a rod and reel handy at all times in my truck for some spur of the moment fishing, or fishing new lakes with no notice...

This is my storage idea that i thought i would share with others to always have something handy.....(pic included)

Its just some industrial strength velcro tape....

(the velcro part is the "industrial strength" i have found, not the adhesive.... so i fixed that part by adhering it with some basic super glue)

on the bottom left you can see a tackle box....

just the basics in it,

couple of worms,

spoon,

rattle trap,

knife,

assorted hooks and weights,

a bobber or two,

and the all important beetle spins (3 in assorted sizes and colors)..cause they'll straight up catch anything that swims!!!!

that all i need to search a random pond that i drive by unexpectedly.....

as for the rod/reel...

its a super old daiwa regal Z on a 6' md power POS FLW rod,

lined with suffix braid 8/30.

Looks like it might rattle......but if it works for you then OK.

it did at first, but that was easily solved.....

if you notice in the pic,

simply make sure that the reel is over the top of the velcro tape after being secured...

that solved the reel from rattling....

as for the rod sections,

i used one of those "packing peanuts" that is shaped like an "8"......

in the pic, off to the left.... just out of view.... the two ends of the rod sections have one of those "packing peanuts" around them,

so that one section goes through each hole....

noise problem,  

solved....

guess i forgot to mention that part in the original post.

nah.....

ive got braid on it...... its fine.

i would not suggest mono and such for this setup as it will break down and become brittle over time with heat and UV exposure.

the braid is not affected like mono/flouro and such by heat and UV.
