DIY Storage Solution For BIG Tenkara RodsA few years back I wrote a Tenkara Tuesday post about re-purposing an inexpensive pool cue rack that is commonly found at Walmart for storing and displaying tenkara rods. It was a very well received post, and I know more than a few people that have purchased billiards racks for their homes since.
Well, I recently purchased a WISCO rod from Badger Tenkara. Supersized for big fish, the WISCO has a very prominent handle when compared to most "normal" tenkara rods and wouldn't fit in my rod racks (as currently screwed in the wall).
What to do? Keep it in it's rod tube? Prop it in the corner of the room? Nah...
A quick trip to the local hardware store yielded this 3-pack of wall clips (intended to hold items like brooms or rakes by their handles) for about $3.
With an easy one screw installation...
...crisis averted...a walled WISCO!
Sure, it might not be quite as elegant as the wooden wall rack to the left, but it keeps the rod alongside its smaller brothers and sisters, and just plain works.
Just thought I'd pass this option along, should you be in the market for, or already own an oversized tenkara rod like the WISCO and want to show it off.
Do you have any tenkara rod storage or display tricks?
