Good fishing rod holders are tough, durable, and can hold even the heaviest fishing rods. They are not only essential in securing fishing rods in place – they also allow anglers to do other things or hold other equipment while fishing.
Types of Fishing Rod Holders
Kinds of Fishing Rod Holders include the following:
Attached/Fixed fishing rod holders
Attached fishing rod holders are built into the exterior of the boat or kayak. They keep fishing rods stable and secure. Because they are usually placed at the center of the boat, they allow limited angling positions.
Removable fishing rod holders
Removable fishing rod holders – which are either angled or straight – are usually placed in the flush mount rod holder, but they can be mounted anywhere in the boat. They are more flexible and allow the fishing rods to veer away from the boat for strolling.
Choosing Fishing Rod Holders (Buying tips)
Clip rotation: Choose a fishing rod holder with an upper pole clip that allows the semi- or full-circle rotation of the rod. This feature provides you with flexibility and versatility, allowing you to position your fishing rod in any angle you want.
Extra features: Fishing rod holders now have all sorts of extra features. If you are prone to sea sickness, for example, choose a fishing rod holder with a curative acupressure stimulator that should be worn throughout the entire fishing trip. It has a strap that exerts efficient pressure that calms the body and soothes the mind.
