Stanchions for fishing rods

Stanchions for fishing rods Someone will say that it is possible with success when catching a rod on the water. Of course, this method has its own supporters, but there are a lot of shortcomings on the face. So in this post we’ll talk about why we need rod stands, what they are and what type to choose for this or that catch.

First, let’s walk through the reasons why you should not put a fishing rod directly on the water. First, over time, this will inevitably lead to a breakdown of the structure of the form and the fastenings. The rod will begin to chase breakages – starting with the departure of the rings, ending with a complete crash at the most inopportune moment. Secondly, it is not so easy to lift a wet rod from water. This significantly worsens the timely cutting. Thirdly, when lifting and lowering the rod to the water, we will rather scare the fish out than if it is located at a small height above the water in the stand.

The simplest stand for a float or bottom rod is a regular flyer made from a branch of any coastal bush. Sometimes, a roguel is supplemented with a counter-flyer to fix the rod in the desired position.

What is the shortage of rogues, carved from coastal bushes. Firstly, count on every fishing you have to cut new flyers. Secondly, not always on the pond there is a suitable vegetation. Thirdly, the design of improvised stands is very poor and often requires more technological solutions. Well, finally – no bushes you will not get bogged down :). By this, various rod stands are used, self-made and manufactured.

When it comes to simple lake fishing for float fishing rods, I apply two sets of rodlets (if I catch two rods) made of duralumin rod and bent in the style of ordinary rodlets – one bend up, the other – down. They are not heavy, but in any place where I need to sit down, I take out the ready-made flyers from the bag, stick them into the shore and calmly catch them, without damaging the surrounding bushes and without wasting precious pre-dawn time :). Of course, the stores sell a lot of different in the design of supports for float fishing rods. But from what I saw – nothing was justified better than my self-made duralumin supports…

If there is fishing by a feeder or sporting flywheel and rod fishing rods, here, of course, complete sets of supports are required, often made together with the seat, etc. Since I’m an avid spinning player, and I rarely catch dolphin and donk – I do not need such kits.

The fact remains: the support for the rod is necessary! And which one to choose – decide on their functional and aesthetic preferences, as well as on the wallet.
