Our son has invested money into his fishing poles and tackle. He is very proud of what he has and wants to keep it nice. We came up with this DIY Fishing Pole Cover for him. Yes, with the bright noodle they look like light sabers!
I have to admit it. I am not a big fan of fishing. Hanging out at the edge of the water is great, but I do not want to touch fish and I only seem to snag things weeds or trash. If I fished with more consistency, I would probably get better. I did buy a fishing license this year so maybe I will get better.
Our son on the other hand really enjoys fishing in always seems to catch something. He is a catch and release type of guy, so he is never worried about the size of the fish that he snags.
What he is concerned about is keeping his fishing poles nice and stopping others from messing with his fishing gear. When he joins us on camping trips, he spends a lot of time fishing. He will bring a few poles with him but there is not a lot of room in our car. His poles are kept at the foot of the backseat passengers. We do not want either of the kids to get poked from the hook so we made these covers.
DIY Fishing Pole Cover
one pool noodle for each pole
Cut a slit the long way down the side of a pool noodle.
Place your fishing pole into the slit so that is in the middle of the pool noodle. The reel and the handle of the pool will be on the outside of the cover.
Place the hook into the side of the pool noodle.
How simple is that? It takes just a few minutes to complete this project. It is a very inexpensive solution to keeping your fishing poles safe because pool noodles are so cheap.
Just slip off the fishing pole cover when you get out to your fishing spot.
