Hi All -
Trying to figure out a good way to carry fishing poles in a protected manor. My wife, son, and I all have spinning rods and would like to bring them on some trips. At least 2 of the poles, if not all 3, will end up on my pack. All 3 poles are 2-piece, and I would definitely carry them broken down. I want to be sure they're fairly protected so I can avoid snapped poles, broken guides, snared spools, etc.
The first thought I had was to hack up some PVC piping to create a tube. The benefit here is that it would be easy to create something that kept them well protected and strapped onto my pack easily, and locked everything in place. The down side would be that I'd imagine that to be a bit heavy.
Any other ideas?
