Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

My rod and reel collection has grown tremendously the past few years and so with that the bundle has grown and with that tangles and some minor damage. I needed an efficient system of storing and organizing quantities of fishing setups. Pick up a spinning rod by balancing on the first eye. Picture suspending that rod by replacing your finger with a cabinet tea cup holder screwed into a 2x4 strung across your garage studs. Enough room to support your longest handled rod with clearance from the floor. I store 39 rods on 13 hooks along the 8' 2x4. The rod is suspended and nothing touches it.

wheres the pic John?

i just realized that my picture was not posted here so i am re posting it.

excellent idea, use of space and materials!

its' been in use now for 3 seasons successfully and holds 39 setups safely in a 8' ft length ( i can fit 3 setups per holder)

ive made an identical set-up for the basement and transfer all my setups there during the winter... construction costs were under $7.00

I have more than 10, my wife will have an extra pair of shoes to match that exceedance to clutter our living spaces.
