You can personalize your fishing rods in various ways and make them “functional art” pieces.
To get you started, here’s a basic guide on installing fishing rods on walls. You’ll only need screwdrivers, brackets, racks, and a dusting cloth and dusting polish.
Accent the rods with small engraved plaques detailing their history. Remove all hooks & the line from the rods to ensure your decorative pieces don’t cause freak accidents.
Get a rod rack. Use brackets and screws to install the rack vertically or horizontally.
Display multiple rods like the ultralight ones in your vertical/horizontal rod rack. Place the rods in opposite directions for artistic effect. Tip to the reel for the first rod, the opposite for the next one in line.
Use the “rule of thirds” while hanging your rods. Section your wall into three sections. Hang the rods within the second-third region of the wall. That’s the ultimate, eye-catching spot.
If you’re using shadow boxes to store and hold the fishing rods, fill them up with sets of flies. Use flies that hold sentimental value to your journey as a fishing enthusiast.
Always dust and polish your fishing rod displays routinely. Or else, they’ll lose their shine and polish.
They’ll look anything but a wall decoration if you don’t maintain them regularly.
Lean fishing rods don’t take up too much wall space.
They can fit on all types of walls – whether you install them horizontally or vertically.
