    Anyone, who has a truck, wants to give me suggestions on fishing rod storage/rack? My truck only has a soft tonneau cover and I don't want to just lay my rods in the truck's bed. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I use PVC pipes capped on one end and a screw lid on the other. They hold ultra light spinning rigs. For my 3wt. fly rod I cut glued and pop rivited two different sized fittings togeather so the reel and a small box of flys and a couple of rolls of tippet fit in the large fitting with a screw lid and that screws onto the 2 inch pipe that holds the rod. Wish I could post a picture. I usually have something behind the truck seat to fish with.

    I use a length of that flexible dryer duct, and permanently duct tape one end closed. I temporarily duct tape a pared down coffee can cover (cheap, plastic disk type) onto the other end.
    PAT PENDING. ;-)

    Like Wannabe said ....PVC pipes in the desired width and length are great rod protectors. Carried rods in boats and the back of a truck that way for years and everything was OK.
    If you leave a rod and reel out of the PVC and loose in the back of the truck a old sock over the reel will protect it from any sand or dirt that might be in the back of the truck.
