Let me apologize right up front.
1) this isn't really an instructable
2) it isn't my idea or my work.
...but the friend who made it is a big fan of the site and we send links back and forth all the time.
the project is already done, and is so simple and so ingenious i wanted others to see it and he agreed to let me share it.
the nickel version is to take two spare pieces of plastic lattice and attach to rafters in the garage. (or basement.)
the ends of the fishing rods go thru the one side far enough to allow you to put the handles into the other side. slide the rods back far enough to allow the rods to stay in place. TADA!
easy, quick, cheap, effective and handy. what more could you ask for?
