I am considering a fly line toe rail for my Mud Minnow. Any pros/cons I need to consider? Also, what are some material suggestions for a DIY job?
Thanks

for a cheap diy you might consider a few pieces of 1/2 pvc capped on both ends then screwed down to the deck :-/

How long are you thinking they need to be? Some kind of plastic board cut into a strip about 1.5" maybe. You can buy starboard at West Marine.. This might sound crazy, but I think I'd check a local restaurant supply co. to see how large they make cutting boards? Cut it down, use a round-over bit on a router for the top edges.

Two strips of 1/4 ply epoxied together in the shape you want. Shape edges, then coat the whole thing in epoxy. Fair if needed. Paint color du jour and install.
