Rod bag saved

Post by LuckyLuca » Fri Aug 11, 2017 3:54 pm

I've had an Efgeeco rod bag knocking around the shed for ages. Too big to be practical. Too nice to just dump.

A garden clear out ment the pressure was on to be ruthless this time around.

Thanks to an :idea: and a sharp pair of scissors a nice happy medium was found.
The side pockets will make a nice little rod bag :Wink:

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Nice job LuckyLuca, saved the rod bag and created a brolly wrap!

Looks good to me. Much more practical size in my opinion.

Cheers Chaps.
At close to 7' it was never going to be used again. The pockets measure up just under 5' and were on the bank with me today. I saved the shoulder strap to so just need to devise a way to attach it.

Now that's lateral thinking and a good utilisation of unused surplus kit, well thought out indeed.....now what have I got I can chop up.....?

I love a good repurposing of something. I've been trying to devise a minimalist quiver for a rod, rest and landing net pole; secure enough to carry them without falling out but small enough to fold up into your pocket when you're bankside. Still trying.
