    Who keeps a fishing rod in their truck (like permanently for if you find a place to fish along the road)?
    and
    Where do you keep it?

    also, what kind of rod it is (collapsable, pack rod, ect...)

    i keep my old browning syntec with a small abu spinning reel in mine. i just stick the handle down on the ground on the pass side and let it rest next to the seat belt clip. someone else can sit there without it gettin in the way and it is easily accessable. and i have caught spur of the moment fish with it. during winter i keep it with a rooster tail for trout and summer i keep it with a small texas rig worm

    Bad part about tacomas and good bass rods is that they are all 6-7 feet long and one piece. So I just put them in my boat when traveling. Cant really carry a spare around, besides that I couldnt decide on just a couple lures, I need to have my complete arsenal when bassin!
