How are you guys storing your rods at home when not in the boat? You guys like the vertical or horizontal racks more? Let me see some pics of your setups if you got them! I saw the old thread, but it didn't have much in the way of pics, so just checking to see if there are anymore out there.

Thanks!

I hang on 2 horizontal wood bars strung from the ceiling. I put some notches for butts and tips. Eye screws in ceiling and bars and some paracord attaching them so it hangs about a foot from the ceiling. Super cheap. Hung about 7.5 feet apart. Gets them out of my way in a tight storage shed with no wall room and easy to put up and take down (from someone who fishes daily).

X2^

But put them above where the garage door goes so they can't be seen when the door is open.

Same for me except I used PVC pipe with pipe insulation. That's where my spares go, the ones I use regularly are here:

Horizontal for me. For the pegs I opted to get copper tubing from Home Depot and splatter it with a very dry miracle grow/water mix then let it dry to prematurely age it. To ensure I wouldn’t get the Patina on the rods I sleeved the peg with clear vinyl tubing. Capped of with a raw copper tubing cap.

The extra details and no rods on the floor any more keep the wife happy.

Rod in the middle looks really un supported but it’s a really soft action fiberglass rod FYI.

I bought some cheapo plastic rod racks with foam insert from Academy and have it mounted vertical on a wall in my fish room in the garage.

Is anyone concerned about keeping all this gear in the garage in Texas with heat and humidity?

Frequently used rods are hanging from the ceiling in the racks I got on EBay

.. my downstairs fly tying, weight lifting, bullet loading room;)
Awesome! But don't you think that each of those activities deserves its own room??? Tell the woman it's time to consolidate her shoes, crafts, and pantry so you've got more room for your stuff! :D
