I've been on several flats boats that have used something like this held to floor with velcro or adhesive

Just go get some rubber floor mat like they use behind bars.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

A friend has done just that ^^ on a paddleboard but has put holes in the mat and threaded zip ties through it to control the coils of line. Not the best looking but very effective

This isn't his, but a similar idea Flyline management on poling skiff - 2CoolFishing

How about artificial grass outdoor carpet like the RVer's use? The "grass" is cut real short & stiff. Should work.

Competition distance casters sometimes spread out a plastic trash bag which they've cut open & then wet it down with water. Are you casting from the deck of a flats skiff or from the floor of a conventional boat?
