How Do I Make a Fishing Pole Holder for My Car?

If you are an avid fisherman, you know the importance of having the right equipment. Not only do you need quality rods and reels, but you also need somewhere to store them.

A fishing pole holder for your car is a great way to keep your gear safe and secure while traveling. With a few simple materials, you can easily make one yourself.

Step 1: Gather Materials- To make a fishing pole holder for your car, you will need some basic materials. These include a piece of PVC pipe cut to size (to fit your car), four end caps, four 90-degree elbow connectors, and some screws or bolts to secure the pieces together. You will also need a drill and drill bit.

Step 2: Assemble the Pole Holder- Once you have all of your materials gathered, start by drilling holes into each end cap. The holes should be slightly bigger than the size of the screws or bolts that you are using to attach them. Next, attach each end cap to one side of two of the elbow connectors using the screws or bolts.

Step 3: Attach Pipe to Elbows- Now that the end caps are attached to the elbows, it’s time to attach them to the pipe. Take one side of each elbow connector and slide it onto either end of the pipe until it is flush with each end. Secure these pieces together with more screws or bolts.

Step 4: Attach Holder to Car- Once your fishing pole holder is assembled, it’s time to attach it to your car. Depending on where you want it mounted in your vehicle, use appropriate hardware such as screws or bolts with washers and locknuts to secure it in place.


Building a fishing pole holder for your car is an easy task that shouldn’t take too long if you have all of the necessary materials on hand. All that’s left now is for you to enjoy your next fishing trip with ease knowing that all of your gear is safely secured and ready for use!
