IK rod holder

I recently purchased a Tomcat tandem IK with the intent of using it to do some flyfishing along the Texas coast this winter. I have not had any luck coming up with a fly rod holder that will work on this type of boat since there is no frame to attach to. Something that holds the rod vertically behind the paddler is probably my best option. Does anyone have any ideas on a source or plans for a DIY setup?
Thanks for taking the time to look.

Look for ones made for float tubes. Scotty makes a nice mount for strapping around tubes. And then you can get whatever type of rod holder suited for what you need to mount on it, scotty makes a lot of options.

You could also glue a ram mount to a tube and go from there.

Somehow I can't edit above but I noticed Scotty also makes a glue on pad for frame less boats their mounts can screw to.

Scotty has several great options. They have a base that I bolted to a roighly 6 x 10 inch piece of wood. I recessed all bolts, drilled 2 one inch holes in the ends, ran a strap through it, and ulimately had a rod holder I can use in my tomcat or lynx. This year, I got the scotty go pro mount that fits the same base, and strapped the rig to the bow of the lynx for some go pro action of my kids. It is pretty versitile, and works really well. I'll work on posting a picture to help visualize it.

Crate idea...

On the cheap, strap a plastic milk crate into the lash tabs of the IK floor.
Easier to fabricate different accessories to attach to the crate, than to the boat. Crate can be relocated or removed as needed. Fashion a lid to secure tackle and small items inside the crate.

I have seen the milk crate idea and it appears to work very well.

Here is the picture of the Scotty mount and small board that mounts well in my duckies.

The dimensions are actually 5.5"x12".
This straps pretty firmly against the inflated floor using the tie down loops in the tomcat/lynx.
