How do you use multiple fly rods in a Pro Angler? The rod holders I see illustrated won't work, I think.

thanks

You would have to be a extremely talented juggler to use multiple fly rods pull that one off! Most folks require both hands for casting their flys, but I have to admit, it would be pretty nifty to see someone cast and retrieve 2 to 4 fly rods at same time... regardless of the boat/yak! :-)

However, I bet you probably meant storing multiple fly rods in a PA. If that was what you were referring to, it all would depend upon your rods. I use some TFO rods that break down into Four sections for traveling. The rod tube makes it really nice, convenient and safe when traveling. If you have either a two or one piece set up, your method would be different of course. One piece rods would require you to stand them up vertical or angled behind you unless you rigged a horizontal holder on the side of the yak (use Hobie's horizontal rod holder on the H-rail outside of the yak).

I'm still not understanding why you would want to take multiple fly rods unless you are going to "spider rig" a set-up up front. In that case, I wouldn't use fly rods, I would use other rods designed for that purpose. Bottom line, where there is a will, there is a way! Good Luck!

Are you wanting a holder to store the rods (like the 3 built in on each side) or actually fish with them like trolling? If you just want something to hold the fly rods while moving you could use a simple Scotty #260 fly rod holder.

I usually take four rigged rods with me chasing rainbows with chironomids on the lakes in BC. Two are rigged for trolling while scouting for fish, one in a holder and the other holding onto. The other two are setup for when I'm anchored up. I start off with them vertically in the crate and they end up laying in the boat with the tips out the back so I can change rods quickly. Two piece rods can be left rigged and broken down so they are ready to go pretty quickly. A single angler in a boat can use two rods in that area but only single fly rigs.
