If you are an avid angler, then the chances are that you have quite a few fishing rods in your collection. The problem is what do you do with them when they are not in use?
Most people would simply store them in a corner of their garage or shed, but that is not always the best option. One of the best ways to store a fishing rod is in a tube.
A tube designed specifically for storing fishing rods is usually made from plastic or aluminum and has a number of compartments for different types of rods. This way, your valuable fishing rod won’t get tangled up with other items and will be safe from any damage caused by moisture or dust. It also helps keep your rods organized and easy to access when you need them.
When it comes to putting the rod into the tube, the process is simple. Start by unrolling the reel and laying it flat inside the tube with the handle facing up.
Then take each section of the rod and slide it into its own compartment until all sections are inside. Once all sections are safely tucked away, use some foam or other material to cushion each section so they don’t move around too much.
Finally, make sure that all parts of the rod are secure before closing up the tube and storing it away somewhere safe. If done correctly, your fishing rod should remain safe and sound until you need it again.
Conclusion: Storing your fishing rod in a tube is a great way to protect it from damage caused by dust and moisture while keeping it organized and easily accessible. The process of putting your rod into its own compartment within the tube is relatively simple as long as you take care to ensure that all parts are secure before closing up the tube for storage.
