DIY: Ultralight Fly Rod Tube for Backpacking Under $5

DIY: Ultralight Fly Rod Tube for Backpacking Under $5

I’ve been on the search recently for a good ultralight backpacking fly rod tube/case that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. I explored the options of aluminum, thin pvc, cordura covered pvc and anything else I could find and nothing seemed light enough or cheap enough for me to buy it. Then I found some info in online forums about how people were making ultralight backpacking fly rod cases out of fluorescent light protectors. What the heck? That sounds like a perfect option, and it sounds like a challenge! After figuring out the details, I decided to post a tutorial so that you too can make this super inexpensive, super lightweight, super quick-to-build fly rod case for your backpacking adventures. Here’s the tutorial for my diy ultralight fly fishing rod tube: Photos by Joshua Rainey Step 1: Go buy yourself a fluorescent light protector at a local hardware store. It costs less than $5 and it’s most of what you need for the project. Make sure you get a 1.5″ thick or it’s not going to work out too well when you go to stick the fly rod into the tube. While you’re at the hardware store, you’re going to need a couple more items if you don’t already have them. I am assuming here that most every household in the U.S. has the remaining items, hence the title above; however, if you don’t then here’s the list. Electricians tape, a razor blade, a tape measure. Easy enough? Purchases made, return home and proceed to step 2. Step 2: Measure your fly rod when it’s broken down to...

4 Canister Stoves Under 4 Ounces & Under $40

4 Canister Stoves Under 4 Ounces & Under $40

Yeah, you read that right, 4 of them! This goes to show that if you want a lightweight stove for backpacking and you don’t want to (excuse the pun here) dish out an arm and a leg for it; no problem. All of these backpacking stoves work interchangeably with most canisters on the market. They’re all super lightweight and can fit in the palm of your hand. Sure, these aren’t the best if solution if you’re setting up a base camp for 6 people in 3 feet of snow in 15 degree weather; but for solo backpacker, the couple, or the small family trying to save on weight these stoves are for you. Each stove has slightly different features, each is made by an entirely different company, and each stove has a slightly different design. Other than that, these stoves are all very similar. There may be some slight differences on output power, or burn time, or whether or not they come with a storage bag. Check out some reviews at the respective sites and order the one that will be the best for your needs. Here are the links: Primus Express Stove – $34.45 Only 2.9 oz and it’s 30% off the regular price of $49.00. Go check out this sweet deal at MoonTrail!
