Design A Canoe Rodholder, Win A Kayak!

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Trapper Canoes is looking for a universal fishing rod holder for their series of canoes. The top five designers will win a really nice kayak for their efforts!

The “Canoe Rodholder Challenge” is pretty clear cut: Trapper Canoes needs an environmentally sustainable rod holder that is interchangeable with any sort of fishing rod. Submitted designs must be made of recyclable materials such as wood, cork, leather, etc., be easily installed or removed without damaging the canoe, and must include a method to mount the holder to a canoe, a system to rotate the rod holder and the rod holder itself. Remember, Trapper Canoes is looking for simple solutions with this pending product, so don’t overthink this one!
