Hi There.
I have considered storing some of my rods in the loft, it is insulated at ceiling height under the boarding and none on the rafters, I think it’s called a cold loft.
I did wonder if rods and waders would suffer any deterioration, as they will be temperature fluctuations, ie hot in the summer and cold in winter time.
Waders are in the garage currently, and for security rods in the wardrobe but I could do with the space.
I would like to use the space but I don’t want to risk any rod damage.
Do other members use their loft or store in a wardrobe?
Thoughts on this appreciated.
Esk1.

I've built a cupboard on the landing to house all my fishing kit as mrs got peed off that they were in the spare room

I have a rack in the loft for my special rods. Also insulated. Never had any issues with them

I would stick some mouse traps up there first and see if you catch any as mice love to chew rod bags and fishing luggage.
