Show me your Rod Boxes.

Been casually shopping for a rod box for my pickup, but am too frugal to buy one.

Stumbled upon this that can be made for cheap.

This would be mainly when I am going to and from the river......as well as while I am jumping between spots on the river.

I still keep them in the vehicle....just takes a few seconds to put them safe inside and a few seconds to reassemble!

When I was heavily into fishing for salmon,steelhead, SRC, me and the guys moved around quite a lot. We always put our rods inside the rig.

Plus, as Jim mentioned, I have no decals on my rig that indicates I'm into flyfishing. Decals are indeed an advertisement for tweakers to break into your rig in search of flyfishing gear they can steal and sell.

Even then I put the rod in my car. I drive a small VW hatchback and I can fit 14ft spey rods in my car with this method.

1. Hook your fly to the guide directly above the middle ferrule and reel up the line so it's nearly tight.
2. Break the rod into two and stash it in the car.

That is my current set up, but have ended up with a tangled mess a couple times.

Be the guide...
I just had a rod break in half when my buddy who was driving slammed on his brakes and the cooler slide into the rod...

I like the reel on, rod tubes for SH Rods.

How long does it take to string a rod compared the cost of buying a new one.
