How Do You Make a Fishing Rod Pod?

Making a fishing rod pod is not as difficult as it may seem. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to improve your angling success. With a few simple materials, you can make a quality fishing rod pod that will help you get the most out of your fishing trips.

Choosing Your Materials

The first step in making a fishing rod pod is to decide on the materials you will use. You can use either wood or metal, depending on your preference and budget.

Wood is usually more lightweight and less expensive than metal, but it does require more maintenance and care to keep it in good condition. Metal is usually sturdier and more durable, but it is also heavier and more expensive.

Building the Base

Once you have chosen your materials, you need to build the base of the fishing rod pod. If you are using wood, start by cutting four pieces to size that will form the base of the frame.

Connect them together using screws or nails and make sure they are securely joined together. If you are using metal, weld the pieces together or use bolts or rivets to keep them together.

Attaching Rod Holders

Now that the frame of your fishing rod pod is built, you need to attach rod holders so that your rods can be securely stored when not in use. There are several types of rod holders available, such as adjustable holders with arms that move up and down and fixed holders with arms that stay in one position. Choose whichever type suits you best and attach them securely to the frame of your fishing rod pod using screws or bolts.

Adding Accessories

Finally, you can add any accessories that will make your fishing trips easier or more enjoyable. These might include a bait box for storing bait, a tackle box for storing lures and hooks, or a knife holder for easy access while filleting fish after catching them. Once all of these items have been added, your fishing rod pod is complete!


Making a fishing rod pod is easy and inexpensive with just a few simple materials needed. Start by choosing either wood or metal for the base frame before connecting it together securely with screws or nails (or welding/bolts/rivets if metal). Attach adjustable or fixed-arm holders onto the frame before adding any accessories such as bait boxes, tackle boxes or knife holders which will make angling easier and more enjoyable!
