How Do You Make a Fishing Pole Travel Case?

Making your own fishing pole travel case is a great way to keep your gear safe and organized while on the move. Not only will it protect your rods and reels from damage, but it also provides an easy way to store and transport them. With a few simple materials, you can make a durable and stylish case that is sure to last for years.

The first step in creating your own custom fishing pole travel case is to determine the size of the case.

This will depend on the size of the rods and reels you plan to carry. If you have large rods or multiple combos, you may want to opt for a larger case. Make sure that whatever size you choose, it has enough room for all of your gear plus extra space for additional items like lures or tools.

Once you’ve determined the size of the case, it’s time to gather materials. You’ll need thick fabric such as canvas or nylon, as well as some lightweight foam padding. Additionally, you’ll need some heavy-duty zippers and hardware like buckles and straps so that everything stays secure while in transit.

Now it’s time to construct your new fishing pole travel case! Start by cutting out two pieces of fabric in the size that you need.

Sew them together with heavy-duty thread; make sure that all seams are double-stitched for extra strength. Then add padding to both sides of the interior with lightweight foam (it should be slightly larger than the fabric pieces). Finally, attach zippers or buckles so that everything stays closed securely.


Making a fishing pole travel case is a relatively simple project that requires minimal sewing skills and materials. With just some fabric, foam padding, zippers or buckles, and basic sewing supplies, you can make a durable and stylish travel case that will keep your gear safe and organized while on the go.
