FWIW you can make your own rod floats from pool noodles cut to size and zip tied on the rod.

Most rods are lost on a tube when pulling another rod out of the rack. Handles get tangled and splash. Not sure how this leash would prevent that.

Yeah! Looks like that might prevent rod rattle too! How did you make those?

rod leashes are great idea but I really cant see how you can loose one if you have a rod rank ? knock on wood I have never had any close calls.

If you have ever lost a rod before it just plan sucks, as a kid I had my new rod pop out of the rod holder on or boat at Puddingstone lake, as we were moving to a new spot. I agree losing a rod on the tube is kind of hard to do but I am sure that if you are to into the big one you just hooked, you might lose some concentration and "what were is my other rod S*!T" I like the idea .:LOLLY:. has in the above picture.

While fishing the SBS last saterday night i was  netting a grump of a fish for my teamate, he starts yelling "your rod"!! i look over at my rod and it was sinking... My 400te/calcutta rod down to the abyss, we tried with treble hooks with no luck!! Last night, 4 days later we hit the spot one more time to see if we can get it. After 20 minutes i called it off but my buddy said one more cast," i said why not" he starts yelling im hooked up, i look over he hooked my braided line and out comes my rod/reel!! F'n AWESOME.....

I came across these on eBay. They should work great for your rod, pliers, nippers, lure box, etc. I put a lanyard on anything I don't want to lose into the water.

These are cheap and have plenty of extension. Too many to buy? Split them with a fishing buddy or two.
