How Do You Make a Fishing Pole Hanger?

Fishing pole hangers are a great way to store your rods and reels when not in use. They also make it easier to transport them from one location to another. Making your own fishing pole hanger is simple and inexpensive. All you need is a few supplies and a little bit of time.

Hereโ€™s what you need to do:

Step 1:

Gather the materials and tools needed for the project. You will need a wooden dowel, some screws, a drill, a saw, some sandpaper, and paint or varnish (optional).

Step 2:

Cut the wooden dowel into two pieces that are the same length. This will be used as the supports for your hanger. Sand the pieces down with sandpaper until they are smooth.

Step 3:

Drill two holes in each piece of wood about 2-3 inches apart. These will be used for attaching the screws that will hold your fishing poles in place.

Step 4:

Attach the screws into the holes that you drilled in each piece of wood. Make sure they are secure so they can hold your fishing poles without slipping out.

Step 5:

Once you have attached all of the screws, hang your fishing pole hanger up on a wall or in a tree near your favorite fishing spot.


Making a fishing pole hanger is easy and cost-effective. With just a few materials and tools, you can make yourself one that will last for years to come. Whether youโ€™re looking to store your rods or take them with you on trips, having a reliable fishing pole hanger is essential for any angler.
