Ever get tired of carrying your poles so carefully through the brush, tall grass, or woods because they get caught on everything in their way? Want to just keep your hands free when on a nice long trek to that hidden fishing hole? Well that's exactly what I thought, so I created this VERY easy carrying tube to collapse my poles and place them in the tube, and hit the trails! I use a carry bag for my tackle box, so I just remove the reels from the rods and place them in the bag with the tackle, and reassemble when ready to fish.
This Instructable is so very easy, all the supplies/tools you need are:
1 - 3" PVC Cap
1 - 3'ft PVC (thin wall) piece of pipe
Drill (drill bits to match bolt sizes)
The rest are items found around home, such as the strap from a duffle/shoulder type bag, and I chose to use some camo Duct tape and wrap around the pipe.
1 - Strap
1 - Duct tape (if you choose)
