For casual and competitive fishermen alike, having the appropriate fishing rod holder is key to catching the ‘big one’. Unreliable, poorly made fishing pole holders could result in the loss of that prize catch, an expensive fishing pole and baiting set you just splurged on. You need a proper holder that is fitted to your boat, a rod holder that will also fit the fishing poles you have. It’s important to note that the holder should not be too large, nor too small for the fishing poles otherwise it simply won’t fit or it’ll slide out easily when you’re in the middle of catching that story-worthy fish. It should also be made from the proper material, so that it can grip the pole in place and hold it securely. The last thing any fisherman wants is to add insult to injury, loss of catch and their pole, too.
