How Do You Make a Homemade Fishing Pole Holder?

Making a homemade fishing pole holder is an easy and cost-effective way to store your rods and reels. With some basic materials, you can make a fishing rod holder that is reliable and looks great. Here are the steps to create a homemade fishing pole holder:

1. Gather Your Materials
You will need two pieces of PVC pipe, two PVC elbows, four PVC T-joints, PVC cement, and sandpaper.

The length of the PVC pipe will depend on how many poles you want to hold. For example, if you want to hold two poles and one reel, then you may want to use 8″ pieces of pipe for the sides, with a 4″ piece in the middle for the reel.

2. Cut Your Pieces
Using a saw or hacksaw, cut your PVC pipes into the desired lengths. Make sure that all your pieces are cut cleanly so that they fit together properly.

3. Sand Your Pieces
Using sandpaper or a file, smooth out any rough edges on your pieces of pipe so that they will fit together properly when cemented.

4. Assemble Your Holder

Start by attaching one elbow joint to each end of a side piece of pipe.

Then attach one T-joint to each elbow joint and attach another side piece of pipe to those T-joints. Finally, attach one last T-joint in the middle and attach the fourth piece of pipe for the reel.

5. Cement Your Pieces Together

Once your holder is assembled, use PVC cement to secure all joints together firmly.


Making a homemade fishing pole holder is an easy project that requires minimal materials and tools. With some basic parts such as PVC pipes and fittings, you can easily create a reliable holder that looks great in any garage or shed.
