How Do You Make a Fishing Rod Holder for the Wall?

Having your fishing rods organized and ready to go is a must for any avid fisherman. A wall-mounted fishing rod holder is an ideal way to store your rods, reels, and tackle. Not only does it take up minimal space and keep your equipment in one place, but it also adds a decorative touch to any room.

Making a fishing rod holder for the wall is easy and doesn’t require many materials.

For this project you will need two pieces of wood, screws or nails, and two hooks. The length of the wood pieces will depend on how many rods you are storing – if you’re storing four or less, one piece should be around 20 inches long and the other piece around 15 inches long. You can use either plywood, particle board or hardwood – whatever type of material you choose should be at least 3/4 of an inch thick.

Start by drilling two holes in each of the wood pieces that line up when they are put together (the holes should be at least 1/2 inch from the edge). Then screw or nail the two pieces together to form a “U” shape.

Once the frame is securely put together, attach two hooks to the top of each end of the frame – these hooks will hold your rods in place. Finally, use screws or a heavy-duty adhesive to secure the frame onto a wall.

Conclusion: Making a fishing rod holder for the wall is simple and can be done with just a few materials. With some basic tools like screws, nails and wood pieces, you can easily create an attractive storage solution for all your fishing gear.
