I found this photo while searching for truck accessories and fishing equipment that can be useful for fishing trips. Has anyone tried making a DIY rod holder made of PVC? Got any tips for this?

Looks like a thieves' delight to me. You' d have to be welded to that truck.

1. The rod holder pictured is easily manufactured. You can see all the parts in the photo. A can of PVC primer and cement (can be bought together in a package)
2. WAY back, when I used to do some surf fishing (conventional gear), I used U-brackets to secure PVC tubes to a 2x6. Both ends of the 2x6 had a 2x2 post that fit into the front stake pockets, right behind the cab. Took up much less room that the contraption above.
(Been so long since I had a truck, I don't even know if they still put stake pockets in there)
Barbed hooks rule!

Have only made them for the kayak. The only "advice" I can give is that in order to accommodate a fully rigged rod, you need some sort of slot. This is a berkley rod holder zip tied to a milk crate. Modifications had to be made...

That one in the truck appears to bungy corded in and looks like he can load and unload it rods and all in one trip.
