hehe have to agree! I got a box from my wife wich they use at the hospital to transpot organs! So i went and made a fibreglass frame with tin foil inbetween.

= a box that holds ice for 4-5 days!

that one was supposed to be for pulling along ,struggling to find wheels to keep cost down ,could work as a h frame but could be too bulkie,as you can see in the pics i can put my rods or spikes accross the top .or you could just cable tie some 50mm pvc pipe to the sides to fit rods,but I have found that rods sticking up in the air on your back is very uncomfortable in the wind

OK then go out and price the materials. If you can get a 2nd hand backpack for a few bucks at a pawn shop or a baby carrier then you can get away fairly cheaply. But if you have to start from scratch then you will see it is perhaps easier and cheaper to pay R700 for the complete thing, and that charging R700 or even R800 for a decent box is not that much. A proper set of straps, not the cheap webbing that you find on some will easily cost a R100. Those plastic boxes alone cost between R40 and R80 depending on what you are using, even more if you use a proper ammo box. And if you have a proper tubular aluminium frame with welds etc, well then add even more bucks. If you want to go the square tubing root which is the easiest then it will be less, but square aluminium tubing will probably easily cost you a R100 or so for a long enough piece.

So maybe if you add it all up plus the fuel to go and buy all the materials there might be a chance in hell to buy a complete one

Have to agree,also did costing to make from scratch and its not worth it ,you only save if you can get old army type or like mine, frame,mine is very comfortable the straps are foam padded and there is a padded section at your lower back
I also dont like the size of some of these h frames ,you have to have a venter trailer just for your backpack,mine is nice and compact and fits more than enough tackle for any trip

Thanx Klippies! They look great! I think you also feel good when you see the end product of a creation. I was thinking of making one that can work as a chair with some shade on top. Wil draw a design at home and post it a bit later.

True, but try and explain to the missus you want to spend R700 on another fishing equipment. Then I rather build it myself and in the process keep myself busy

I bought an old army frame for R150, the 25lt black box for R50 and bought some octopus straps for R10...assembled it all and its a pleasure to use.

love the look on the other guys with both hands full, struggling along the beach whilst i have my hands free. its ideal for long walks to some spots

We make two types, a luxury one and an economy one. (I use the economy one). we also custom make some like one we did for mike Pautz for the international with a built in table that he could fold out and put all his kit on so he could leave it in the shallows and not walk so far to his bags. also helps for sore backs!! here are some pics of both.

Ja, it looked awesome. was mikes idea and the factory did a fantastic job making it increadibly light weight with long enough folding legs and it fit against the frame perfectly so you would not notice anything different unitl you took it out! will get some pics from him at some stage.

the straps has a easy tie on/off method,so can even be put on any other frame if you so wish

In December i realised how badly i needed one when you are walking +-3kms on the beach with a backpack on the back rodds and poles + baitbox in in one hand and a heavy coolerbox in the other! I nearly died!lol

I suppose it's not really about the costs, but more the satisfaction one gets from custom building what you want - post pics when you finished!

I see some of you okes use hollow tubing, I'm actually surprised to see no one has a built-in LED light with batteries in the frame yet. Nobody fishes at night ?


Alu and plastic is still relative heavy, you get some Alu alloy's that are super light, so is carbon fiber.

We have a shop close to us called crazy plastics, sells all kinds of plastic things. It is amazing how light some plasic things are while another type of plastic comes in a lot more heavy.

This thread has inspired me to make one for my Easter fishing trip to Mapelane.
1st step, im going to buy an H-frame from the Army surplus store in pretoria.
From there, i will be browsing this site to get the lowdown on what to attach (and how).
This is going to be fun

Alu and plastic is still relative heavy, you get some Alu alloy's that are super light, so is carbon fiber.

We have a shop close to us called crazy plastics, sells all kinds of plastic things. It is amazing how light some plasic things are while another type of plastic comes in a lot more heavy.

I see some of you okes use hollow tubing, I'm actually surprised to see no one has a built-in LED light with batteries in the frame yet.

Brilliant idea Fanie!

@Fanie I got hold of one of those headlamps they use in the mines with the battary pack. Very good idea to install it on the frame as these lights, lights up the whole place!

@ MB - have made a detachable cushion, affixes at the rear (clips on) -  can only hope that this may serve the purpose, otherwise will go the route of harness!

@shelvpower - young man, don't concern yourself about hijacking. The question relates very well and a good one at that!

My 2c though, seeing I haven't used it before - I have taken a few plastic boxes (smallish) with partitioning, in which I have stored hooks, swivels (sized in the partitioning) and a 1kg margarine tub, in which I have stored sinkers. Trace line and odds and ends are loose at the moment, but will get there too. I think the secret is to remain light weight, but in my case, I also want some order, so I'm still working on this.

I today wanted to rivet onto the inside (sides) an alaminium sleeve into which I could slip a knife - different sizes are available (the kind you would find in a cupboard used for hanging clothing), for one or two knives - haven't settled on this idea yet though!

Hiya CJ,

I can see them...just they take a long time to come up? Maybe becasue they are large sized images.

Chaps I had a quick look at CJ mods after the RASSPL comp on Sat, it looks great and works well. What I liked was that the fittings are not cheap and nasty. They have been well fitted with a strip of nylon or pespex to stop any rips.

Think I will look into getting myself setup like this as well.

Dit hang af waar ek vang en vir wat ek hou van die safari want ek kan op die deksel lekker werk binne in kan ek maklik 4 500mil koeldrank 4 mackie 4chocka 4 mullet box 1kg pillie geelstert kop of twee en kolstert koppe plus kos vir die baas as hy honger raak en miskien n paar frigates ok by ,as ek kabeljou koppe het dan is dit minder .onthou hoe voller jou box hoe langer bly jou ass gevries

Onthou jou raam moet die box kan akkommodeer, anders moet jy jou 4x4 saamvat!

Then I saw one Tackle Box at Somerset Sports that had a tray in it, so I made one for my box too.  3mm Plywood with two coats of Clear Varnish.
