    Thanks in advance

    Do you mean pics of those PVC casting rod holders that can carry up to 3 or more rods? This may be for casting guys. My apologies if thats what you were talking about.

    I fly fish, so I only take one fly rod when I go out. No need for anything on my tube other than a buddy strap for my sonar and a rod leash for the fly rod. My saddlebags are half empty as it is.. they only hold a small box of flies, pliers, fish lipper, small silicone dry sack (6"x9") for cell and ID, fishing license, extra fluorocarbon, two extra Fireline leaders, a left-hand glove for Spottie teeth, an old dry wash cloth, pepper spray, a small bottle of water and a ridiculously bright headlight for evening sessions. All that's really attached to my tube is that green buddy strap you can see cinched onto the left chamber.

    Hard top apron, 'Fishernewb' 's from youtube rod rack. Garmin, plier holders, 2 rod holders, camera mount. Mount my batter on the hard top and the transducer is off the bottom of the rod rack. My net has a snap and leash I hook on the right side. I also deploy it as a weak drift sock when I want to slow my drift.

    But I only go all out when I'm launching somewhere easy. If I have to hike in or anything I leave all the extras at home.

    That is a cool tube set up Egorham.
    All I know is that if you were fishing out of only an inter tube....you still would be catching a lot of bass!
    Tight lines buddy. :)

    This is an old picture. Lot more ductape and rubber cement now. It floats (barely) but that's all you really need. Fish don't care.

    I saw that on youtube. I'm thinking of a way to incorporate that into the FishCat 5 I just got. Having a sturdy table in front of you would have so many benefits.
    If anyone has attached one similar tablke to a fishcat please share
    Great set up buddy. Thanks for posting

    Yeah, balances everything out, and anchors to the bottom of the tubes. Here's a pic of them. The top one is for the FishCat 5 and the bottom is for the Cumberland. That pool comes in handy for testing fitment before taking it to the bay or lake and realizing s**t don't sit right.

    Ha thanks Vinny. I know it's totally over the top and unnecessary but it was fun to put together and I already had the stuff anyway. One of these days I'll make it back down to Murray to drag a ned and catch some dinks :emoji_grimacing:

    No problem man.

    IDK how much a budget matters to you, but in retrospect I would use PVC for most of the pieces and only use ABS for the weird connectors you can't get in PVC. Buy the ABS to PVC cement and should be good. Won't look as nice, but may save you a few bucks. I think in Fishernewb's youtube video he says you can make the rack for like $16, but I was closer to $40 with current prices and not having the cement already.
