How Do You Make a Fishing Pole Holder in the Ground?

Fishing pole holders in the ground are great for those who love to fish, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on an expensive store-bought holder. Making your own holder is a great way to save some money and still get a reliable holder that will last for years. Here’s how to make your own fishing pole holder in the ground.

1. Choose Your Location.

The first step in making a fishing pole holder is to choose the right location. It should be close enough to the water that you can easily access it when you need it, but far enough away that your poles won’t get in the way when you’re moving around. It should also be somewhere that isn’t prone to flooding or getting washed away by waves.

2. Gather Materials.

The materials needed for this project are fairly simple: some PVC pipe, stakes, rope or twine, and a shovel. You might also need some sandpaper if you’re using PVC pipe.

3. Assemble Your Holder.

Start by cutting the PVC pipe into pieces that are slightly longer than your longest fishing rod. Then use sandpaper to smooth down any rough edges on the pipe and stakes. Next, use rope or twine to tie the pieces of PVC together into a frame that will support your rods when they’re placed in it.

4. Dig Your Hole. Now it’s time to dig a hole for your holder.

Make sure you dig it deep enough so that the holder won’t tip over when loaded with rods, but not too deep so that it’s difficult to remove from the ground.

5. Place The Holder. Once you’ve finished digging, place your holder into the hole and use more rope or twine to secure it in place by tying it around nearby trees or rocks.


Making a fishing pole holder in the ground is an easy and cost effective way for anyone looking for an efficient way of storing their poles while fishing. With just some basic materials and tools, anyone can build their own sturdy holder in no time at all!
