Well I've been doing a lot of fishing lately. And recently I began using my bike to get me up and down the trails along the river I'm fishing. While the bike is helpful with lugging me and the gear to the "Honey Hole", I have more often than not come close to wrecking. Needless to say a wreck with my tackle bag around my shoulder, and two rigged up fishing poles in my left hand would be quite a yard-sale. So I bought a seat-post mount luggage rack made by Schwinn
and I'd strap my tackle bag on there, and I thought I was safe, but the very next day I almost bailed when one of my rods got caught on a tree, So I got to brainstorming and designed the following solution.
