I'm sure I can't be the only one with this problem: I have a single can pickup with no room for rods, so I've always struggled to find a place for my fishing rods when I have my kayak in the bed. Previously I've been putting them inside my kayak (I have a SINK) but by now I've bent and broken enough eyes to learn that this isn't the best idea. What are some of y'all's rod transport ideas? And any suggestions for bait casting eyelet repair (I'm only half joking)?

Use "Gear Tie", its like a bendable wire coated in rubber. I use them to bundle up multiple rods. You can run it through your truck bed stake holes to tie your rods just under the top rail of the truck bed. They will be out of the way and won't bounce around.

Get a length of 4" PVC pipe and cap one end. Slide your rods in the open end and cover the reels with a plastic bag to keep the road grime out. Strap it down in your yak.

This. Easy, effective, and most importantly, cheap.

Thanks for the ideas. I think I'm going to attempt to build something like what pocfishin suggested with the google link out of PVC pipe. I'll just need them at a low enough angle that they don't get caught in low hanging branches
