DPS101 Seat Apparatus

This rod holder is designed for use while a person is in the sitting position. The rod holder comes in two pieces; one the base, which slides under the front part of your legs and secondly, the yoke, which holds the fishing pole. When you are not fishing you do not have to have the yoke part attached. The yoke slides onto the base from the front. There is also a small length of pipe insulation inside the yoke tube, which helps hold the fishing pole very secure.

This rod holder is primarily designed for a person that would prefer to stand while fishing. The rod holder is designed to be able to hold the rod while the mobile hand and arm is able to reel in the fish. The rod holder has two straps; one, which goes around the neck, and the other, goes around the waist. The waist apparatus should go ideally around the largest part of the users waist. Two things are needed to custom manufacture the apparatus for an individual; first, does the individual have a preference of sides, either right or left, and secondly, what is the approximate girth of the person using this apparatus. Given this information the rod holder can be customized and sent out from day of order in approximately 2 weeks.
