I'm thinking of making a bracket similar to a U-bolt because I still want to be able to remove them if I'm not fishing. Any other ideas?

I use the Scott holder
Scotty Fly Rod Holder at

something like this but mine has a webbing base designed to secure to float tubes so I can strap around a rolled paco or side rails or .....anywhere. I also fabricated some ubolts and a plastic tube type thing for a couple of more holders. Not as adjustable as the Scott but still works.

I use PVC and modeled it after the riverboatworks ones. 3/4" wide slot and leave about 2' at the tip and 3" at the butt intact. I use a velcro strap to secure the rod in the tube at the reel and then I cut two perpendicular slots about 3/4" apart from each other at the tip and butt of the holder. Thread a strap through those and attach to the frame.
