How Do You Stow a Fishing Pole?

Fishing poles can be a hassle to store if you don’t stow them properly. Stowing your fishing pole properly will help maintain the integrity and longevity of your pole, and prevent the disruption of other items in your fishing kit. Here are some tips for proper stowing of your fishing pole:

1. Disassemble your Fishing Pole

The first step to properly stowing a fishing pole is to disassemble it.

Before you do that, make sure you’ve removed any excess line or debris from the reel or guides. Doing so will make it easier to fit the pieces into a case or rod holder.

2. Select an Appropriate Storage Container

Next, select an appropriate storage container for your fishing pole.

The container should be large enough to fit all of the pieces of the rod without being too tight. If possible, look for a container with padding or foam lining to further protect your rod.

3. Insert Pieces into Container

Once you have selected an appropriate storage container, insert the pieces of the rod into it one at a time. Make sure each piece is securely in place before moving onto the next one.

4. Securely Close Container

Finally, make sure that you securely close the storage container before moving it around or storing it away. This will prevent any damage to the rod due to excessive movement inside the container.


Stowing your fishing pole properly is essential for maintaining its integrity over time and keeping other items in your fishing kit safe from disruption. With these tips, you can easily and safely store your fishing pole.
