Finding the Perfect Fishing Shed

June 17, 2022

Every avid fisher should have a fishing shed. Unlike many other sports (i.e., tennis, volleyball, swimming), fishing can be equipment intensive. You need a place to store your rods and reels, tackle, bait, nets, waders, and perhaps even your boat, kayak, or canoe.

No matter what your skill level is, organizing your fishing gear plays a significant role in your enjoyment of going fishing. Having a fishing shed and keeping your fishing gear and supplies neat and accessible saves you time to enjoy your favorite pastime. You don’t have to worry about finding your gear amongst rakes, lawnmowers, leaf blowers, and everything else that accumulates in your garage.

A Fishing Shed for Hobbyists

You need storage space if you find yourself casting a line just about every weekend. A small shed measuring 10’ x 12’ or 10’ x 16’ is perfect for storing gear for someone who fishes regularly, or even a novice just starting out. These sheds can accommodate storage racks, shelving, and storage bins for organizing your gear. They can fit in most backyards, and Countryside Barns can help you select or design a shed that will blend in perfectly with your home and landscaping.

Fishers are using kayaks more than ever. Kayaks can be easily transported on top of your car, making them the perfect watercraft for fishers. An overhang kit can be added to your fishing shed to protect your kayak from the elements.

A Fishing Shed for the Fishing Fanatic

If you’re a fishing fanatic, fishing is much more than a hobby – it’s a way of life. A larger fishing shed, 12’ x 24’ up to 14’ x 40’, is the perfect place to store one or more boats and dozens of rods. It also provides you with a special space where you can construct lures, harvest worms for bait, and make repairs on your boats.

Fishing sheds can also be decorated with mounted catches, fishing-related artwork, and hanging nets and buoys. It’s a place you can make yours, and your significant other will appreciate not having your gear cluttering up the house, basement, or garage.
