Easy Fishing Rod Mount

I was going to wait another few days to blog so I could say that it had been a month since my last entry, but due to terrible weather, I left work early to-day and felt inspired to write when I got home.

Here's a poor man's tip for hanging some of your fishing rods. I'm known for simple and cheap ideas to get the job done, whatever that is.

This is about as "unfancy" as you can get, as for ways to hang your fishing rods. I LOVE simple stuff and hanging up my rods is no exception as you can see here. Yup, that's a single 1 1/2 inch finishing nail hammered about a 1/4 inch deep and at a slight angle, pointing upwards, towards the wall. Next, you simply balance the strung (ready to go) rod, above the reel, on the handle where ever the balance point is for that rod and reel combo. There, you're done. Fast, dirt cheap and totally efficient. Also you're displaying that puppy proper like, for your visitors to view...

Here's a link to the same picture, stored over at Boxstr, one of my FREE Photo Hosting places on the web. By clicking the link, you can take a look at some of my other photos if you want as well. Most of them will end up in here some time or other, so you get a kind of preview if you will, by sliding over to Boxstr. Plus, you might like them enough to get yourself hooked up with this fine FREE Photo Host for your own pictures to boot!

Hey, it's March already and spring can't be too far off, although you would not have thought that about 6 this morning on my way to work. Freezing rain made every square inch of sidewalk a real hazard and a total test of balance skills and broken bone avoidance. Management decided that it was too dangerous for the boys to work to-day and so, sent us home after a little re-loading of about a ton or so of material. Makes for a shorter week and I LOVE it!
