How Do You Store a Fishing Pole in a Van?

Storing a fishing pole in a van can be tricky, but with the right setup and organization, it can be done. You will need to consider the types of poles you have, the size of your van, and any accessories you might have along with your rod and reel.

The first step is to measure your van’s interior space and calculate how much room you have available for your poles. You will also need to decide on the type of storage system that works best for your specific situation.

If you are carrying multiple rods, then it is best to use a rod holder or wall-mount rack system for maximum convenience. These systems come in various sizes so you can choose one that fits in your van perfectly.

The advantage of this type of storage is that it keeps your rods organized and easily accessible when you need them.

If you only have one or two rods to store, then you may want to consider using a specialized fishing bag or tackle box that has pockets designed specifically for storing rods. This type of storage allows for more flexibility since it can be moved around as needed. Additionally, most of these bags come with additional compartments or pockets where you can store other items such as lures or tools.

Another option is to use a strap system which allows you to secure multiple rods together in an upright position without taking up too much floor space. This type of storage is ideal if you need easy access to multiple rods at once.


No matter what type of fishing pole storage solution you choose, make sure it fits comfortably in the space available in your van and allows easy access when needed. With a little bit of planning and organization, it is possible to store your fishing pole securely and conveniently inside your van!
