We at Pakistan have been facing this problem regarding ROD RESTs for freshwater angling. Was just wondering if any one would like to share the best design that we can get locally manufactured.

Basically different kindds of fishing requires different rod positionings. Like for Masheer on live bait we usually keep the rod at a 45-75 degree angle. So to have one rod rest that caters to all the asspects is important.

Would appreciate the info or PICS.


:lol:

What we at the pump house have done is got rod rest made in two sizes - 3 feet and 2 feet.

For carp we use the 2 footer in front. This rod to point into the water. For sol, mulley and other predators we flip the set up with the big rest in front. This allows rod to point up and bites are indicated at the rod tip.

As for the design it is simple. A straight metal rod (sariya) with a metal U welded on top. A little toweling wrapped on the U makes sure there is no damage to the rods (though I still have to get this done)

Hope this helps

Rather than wrapping towelling arround the "U", another option is to take a length of tubeing that just fits over the metal and push it over the ends of the metal.
At first. the tube will stick up vertically, making the "U" into an "O", but put the rod on it and push it down and the tubing will form a liner, keeping the rod and the line away from the metal which may well have sharp edges.
