My son was 6 yrs old and afraid of getting a hook in his fingers, he asked me to bait his line. The fish were extra hungry that day and each time I had to lay my rod down on the pier. It was a busy holiday weekend and some family members arrived by boat. People would continuously walk by and I would have to say
"Watch out for my rod"!
After the 50th time saying this, Ky said "Deed's, wouldn't it be cool to have a rod holder for a pier?"
I walked over grabbed a napkin to do some sketches. I am happy to offer my answer to his question...
