Fishing rod holder
Fishing rod holder with signal means
AbstractThe fishing rod holder includes an elongated, open ended tubular member for receiving the end of a fishing rod and a support bracket having a rear end, a front end including a support portion engaged by the tubular member and located above the rear end, and an elongated base portion located between and below the rear end front ends. The upper portion of the tubular member rear end is connected to the upper edge of the support bracket rear end for pivotal movement of the tubular member through a generally vertical plane and about a pivot axis located rearwardly and above the longitudinal axis of the tubular member between a forwardly inclined resting position engaging the support portion of the bracket and a raised position. The base portion of the bracket is removably mounted on a support, such as boat oarlock, a troll board, pier, or the like, by a pin which is mounted on and depends from the base portion and fits into a hole in the support. The pin preferably is removably mounted on the bracket by a bolt extending through an aperture in the base portion and threaded into the pin and the base portion includes a plurality of such apertures so that the inclination angle of the tubular member can be adjusted by moving the bolt from one aperture to another.
