10-Minute Tech: Rod-and-Reel Rack

fishing rod storage using cup hooks in RV storage area

Our fishing poles were taking up valuable floor space, and the lines were getting tangled, so we created a way to keep the rods up and out of the way in our RV’s pass-through storage compartment. They are suspended from the frame, each via two safety-cup hooks, with clips that are screwed into the beam.

Selecting the proper drill size for the thread pattern was the tricky part and involved a bit of trial and error, so we started with a drill bit that was smaller and worked up to the right size. Once the hooks were screwed in tightly, each one got a dab of Gorilla Glue for good measure. Now our fishing rods are tucked up out of the way, easy to get to and always ready for use.
