How to Build Storage for Fishing Equipment

How to Build Storage for Fishing Equipment
Keep your fishing rods, reels, line and other equipment up and out of the way when not in use. This will prevent damage to the rods as well as avoid problems with fishing line and lures. Making storage on the wall for these various items is done with a few items from your tool box or hardware store.


Difficulty: Moderate

Things You’ll Need:
  • Conduit clamps
  • Rod clips
  • Drill
  • Screws
  • Plastic or metal hooks
  • Eye hooks
  • Nails
  • Pronged holders
Step 1
Locate an area in the home or garage where you can store your fishing gear.
Step 2
Attach conduit clamps low on the wall where you want to store your rods. Select clamps that are large enough for the handle of the rod to slip through. Use plastic clamps so that they don't damage the handles. If you hit a stud when drilling, drill a small pilot hole to help get the screw into the wall. This will keep you from stripping out a screw head.
Step 3
Slip the pole in place and mark the wall where the rod should be placed. Attach rod clips where you marked the wall. These clips will keep the rods back against it and out of the way. Use a drill to attach the clips to the wall.
Step 4
Attach simple plastic or metal hooks to the wall to hold fishing vests, waders and other clothing gear up off the ground and out of the way.
Step 5
Screw in eye hooks to hang up fly tying and other fishing tools. For fishing line, simply nail a long nail into a wall stud and keep a good length of the nail exposed. Fishing line comes in spools with a hole in the middle. Slide the spools onto the nail.
Step 6
Attach a pronged holder to the wall on which to slip extra reels. They can hang between the prongs by the metal piece that attaches them to the rod.

Tips & Warnings

If you want to keep all the things close together, attach all the holders to a wooden board or piece of plywood and then attach the board to the wall.
