Hmm unless you mount a one piece pole like a cb antenna and go slow I would think it's like expectancy would be short. Most poles would be longer then the bike, so mounting horizontally is out of the question. You just don't like two and 3 piece poles or do you fly fish?



The old pole threads

I think it depends on if your trail riding to get to your fishing hole or just riding open road.



In my case, one of my next projects is to come up with a mount/platform to hold 2 poles and a 5 gallon bucket, for a particular camping/reservoir spot i like to frequent,





I"ll be able to leave the < 5' poles in one piece pointing rearward, or so goes my vision at this point.

All you need is the greatest TW ever to roam planet earth.

Too bad the pictures aren't there anymore. This thing had a pair of bazooka tubes, perfect for fishing poles, or anything in this world, according to the seller.



The basic idea is a pair of large PVC pipes attached on either side of a rack, pointed at a slight angle to the rear.

I am a fly fisherman. Have not gone fishing on the TW much. But when I do I have a very nice travel fly rod that packs into a tube of just under 20", so it fits easily in a backpack. That along with a fanny pack size fishing pack which holds everything else including the reel is all the equipment I need to fish. Many companies make nice travel rods now, all but the worst cast just as well as the 2 and 3 piece models. The one I have is from Orvis, if I remember right it cost about $200.

Rich, thanks for the Sunday morning laugh. Hadn't seen those Bill Dance bloopers in a long time. The snake falling out of the tree is classic!



Jake, I fish mostly for trout in the Eastern Sierra and use light-weight gear. The rods I use are two pieces that I stuff in a backpack. Less than 15" sticks out of the top of the backpack. Works well for me.

Is that a diagram of a "duPont spinner" ?


Give that man a prize for correctly identifying the Dupont Spinner.



This thread is kinda timely for me cuz I'm about to rig up for fishing the local aqueduct at night. Curious to see how others deal with all the poles, lanterns, buckets, etc.
