How to make a Rod Holder for firm ground for Surf Fishing
Sand Spikes or Rod Holders for loose sand areas are made from PVC Pipe. A single 6 foot length of 2 inch diameter PVC pipe will make two 3 foot long sand spikes. Use schedule 40 PVC which is heavier than light weight PVC. Cut the PVC pipe on about a 30 degree angle as shown in the picture below. Then sand the cut area and opposite ends with sandpaper to remove any sharp edges. The PVC Rod Holder can easily be pushed into loose sand and will support a fishing rod.
