Rogue + Salmon ladder = awesomeness

I hope Bill sees this and adds any input he has.

I am thinking about building a salmon ladder and thought I wonder if Rogue has thought about making the hooks that could attach to the front of the 12 foot uprights and would make a perfect salmon ladder. Put a crossbar at the top to put a rope and add stability! The uprights need to be spaced 3.5-4 feet apart (just like for the 4 foot section of a rig).

I have the 9 foot uprights now and noticed that it has holes in the front and if we just had something like J-cups but more at an angle that bolted in from the back to make them stay would be all I would need.

Bill- if you haven't tried it and need a product tester I'm willing to be one


Has anyone else made a salmon ladder and if so how did you. I have seen many videos on it but looking for the best way for me to do it.

Re: Rogue + Salmon ladder = awesomeness

You could always just buy a crapload of J-hooks! LOL

Actually, like you said, they would have to be a bit different. how about the gun rack hooks?

Re: Rogue + Salmon ladder = awesomeness

We have considered making them before, I always decide not to because I of liability issues.

I bet you could make some pretty easy with some 4X4's notched and a hardwood dowel.

Bolt that to the face of an upright, should work! Never tried it but would be worth testing!

So Bill, what if you made a special "gun rack" attachment to an infinity rig that was spaced a little wider and went a little higher...

Re: Rogue + Salmon ladder = awesomeness

I was thinking maybe he could make attachments as "jump rope holders" that came with a disclaimer that said sold only for specific purpose only. Any other use is not on them.

Jesse

I still think you want the width of the upright for support so the gun rack width is too thin.

Band saw+ 4X4 + Drill = Ladder would be my guess!

Bolt it up to the face

Re: Rogue + Salmon ladder = awesomeness

Here is what came of my salmon ladder. The first picture with the wood arms was my first attempt and it was ok but I broke one and they would become loose and move around a little. So I have a member that had a better idea and welded a metal plate to bolt onto the front of the 4x4s with the pegs being metal. It is as solid as the 4x4s go. So far I am playing around with what type of bar to use. I currently like the wood dowel because it is considerably lighter than the metal pipe I have. The wood dowel does bow a little but if I keep a wide grip it is better. I haven't gotten past the third step due to brain function higher than body function and I bail out! I don't have any pads down yet.

That is sweet man. I have never tried a salmon ladder but it seems like it looks hard as hell.
