So, I have my rods laying around on a shelf with other fishing junk.
Not exactly optimal, and probably will eventually lead to heartbreak, as these wands just want to roll off the cliff and onto the floor.
Saw this business of using a pool cue rack to store tenkara rods.
Great idea Daniel Galhardo!!!
Like any great idea I would like to tweak it a little and am also curious what you folk do for drying rods.
I was thinking about drilling drainage holes into the divots the butt end of the rack. Also I was thinking about wall mounting a mesh tray to hold tip plugs and butt caps. The idea being that I might be able to remove the tip plugs and butt cap sand let gravity drain any moisture trapped in the rod. I am not 100% sure if this will work though as…there seems to be some capillary or surface tension that keeps some water inside.
As it stands now…I have to take apart my rods and lay them out flat to dry them. Perhaps draining them using a vertical storage method will be better and easier.
what do you guys do?
