Caddis Nevada Gold? If so, I made a simple two rod holder for one.

I've never done this, but I've read that you bend PVC using a heat gun, but the PVC has to be filled with sand. Otherwise it won't bend smoothly, and will just wrinkle and kink. I have a heat gun, which you can get for like $14 at Harbor Freight.

You can also flare the ends of PVC, using the heat gun on the end, and then push in a glass wine bottle or glass beer bottle.

Here's a link to a site that shows how to bend pvc: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yup, the rod holder is held in place by the black rings using velcro or cables ties.
