      Just go to your local electrical supply store or lowes. it shouldn't cost more than $10, but it's been a while since I priced PVC. Isn't 6-in a little big? what type of rod and reel are you putting in it?

          pvc has gone through the roof, for 6in it will be about $40 between pipe and fittings.

            Go to your local building supplier and ask for a piece the length you need. Most stores have a by the piece bin.

              Alright, here's the lowdown.
              6" pvc is very expensive. Most home stores like Home Depot etc. will not have it. Your's may be different but I have to buy anything larger than 4" from my irrigation supplier
              A 20' stick right now lists for about $171.56 and is only sold by the 20' stick.
              Fittings like the end caps are around $30.00 ea. 6" fittings are also a pain to glue.
              My advice is to go with 3" or 4" pipe or whatever will fit your rod, the snugger the better. Hopefully you can buy in 10' lengths at the home stores. Some of them will sell it by the foot but a 10' stick is the smallest they make it in. You are looking at a cost difference of around $180.00 if you go with the smaller pipe.
              My guess is you were hoping to get your reel in with the rod. Probably not the best idea for cost reasons and you also probably don't want your reel banging around in the pipe.
              The costs are wholesale and the price changes frequently but it will give you some idea of why the smaller pipe is better.
              Good luck and I hope this helps.

                Thanks, if i just get a couple inch PVC what should i use for the reel? I was trying to put the reel in to, but i would be willing to get a seperate case for it. Thanks.

                    I carry mine in the pocket of my fishing vest. If you don't have a vest you might think about getting one, they are a handy way to carry enough tackle for a day of fishing without toting your whole box around. My full box weighs about 40 lbs so I have a couple of travel boxes that I can load for a day and carry in the back and side pockets of my vest.
                    If you fish with the sort of folks who will give you grief for wearing a fly fishing vest, they usually get over it after seeing how handy it is. All my buds did and most have one themselves now. Cabelas has a good cotton one.

                      Call Lowes or Home Depot and ask... different prices for different areas.
