I went to the DOLLAR TREE and bought a dog leash!
Actually, I bought 5 to leash my rods, grippers, pliers...etc.
Oh yeah and they matched my KAYAK!
PROBLEM SOLVED!

Where do you get the velcro? How do you secure it to the leash?

great job. You should place shrink tube at the end to give it a pro look. But other then that good job.

very instructive video, great & elegant idea using spiral cord; I use old bag shoulder straps for boat equipment, or visitor badge lanyards, or simple ropes, but they aren't retractable. I'd prefer stainless metal for all hardware parts, plastic will decay when exposed to sun (UV), and eventually snap. Or get new parts every season. -- well, I'll go and get some old spiral cords and get an upgrade for my lanyards now.

Wow!!!! That is not very cool. Toast, all of these "How To's" are excellent stuff. You cover stuff for everyone from a novice to a seasoned veteran. Good job on this. One of my fishing bud's did this exact thing and they have held up for at least two seasons now.

Who said it is to stop a fish from taking the rod? It is so you don't lose it overboard, primarily if you turtle your kayak, or during surf launches... Hense it is not "ghetto."

Thanks bro! Thanks for the support! No kits though, I just LOVE thrift stores.

YOU Fucking Rock man. Do you sell kits, or anything? Should if ya dont. And to the guy who said ya got too much time on your hands, Thats BS. Ya got a bunch of creativity. And im sure Rain and Cold have something to do with it. (in seattle, i feel your pain)

5 star this helps out alot!! im new to this sport and on a tight budget so every penny counts! thanks again!!

Thanks Woodkayaker! I actually use velco on one end to make a paddle leash the same way.
woodkayaker
woodkayaker - 15 years ago
Cool! For a variation on this idea, use velcro on one end. Spinning reels don't really have a place that the clip would work on. Nicely done, John! 5 stars! Check out my kayak fishing video - it's called "A Lotta Bull!", by Woodkayaker (That's me). (My first kayak fishing video - please don't be too critical!)
