I was never satisfied with the saddle bag rod holder option on his rafts and squeezing the rod between my legs gets old.
I had 2 of the Scotty rod holders I used with a pontoon boat I no longer had. Turns out there are various mounts shown right on the packaging box for the rod holders. I never bothered to really examine the box until recently.
Luckily, the rail mount clamps fit the foot bar of his rafts perfectly, at least on this model. So I purchased a couple.
I know, look out for tree branches.
I hope this idea helps someone who owns his boat--John

That setup would be great for harling. I did not say that.

You don't knuckle the rods when you row a long stroke?

I "dry" rowed it. Plenty of clearance for me and you can adjust the rod holder to different angles. Looks tighter than it is.

What's harling?

Nice idea. Small warning - one side of my foot rest came off last summer (same boat as yours), it's the rubber boss thingy that the metal tube inserts into. Had to re-glue, so far so good.

I try not to do really crazy water with this raft. No problems with that foot brace so far. But thanks for the heads up.

harling is sort of like pulling plugs, but with a spey rod. Something to do if you float thru juicy water on the way to the next hole.
But I didn't say that, either. :smokin:

So if a guy pointed those rods the other way, a fella could go harling (trolling?)pretty easily, not that I said that either.

In my case, the dark side karma would probably direct me straight into a sweeper with the biggest fish of my life on.
