Bow leaning rail height

I'd like to put a simple leaning rail on the bow of our boat, a Yellowfin 24, but I have to confess I've never used one. We fly fish, so snag-"less" is an concern. Also, having a compact form so we can store store it when not in use is a plus. For design I'm thinking of a very simple inverted "U" shaped piece of tubing that will go into a pair of rod holders on the forward casting deck. A couple possible ideas came from this older thread:

What is the best height for a leaning rail? Mid-thigh? Hips? Belly-button?

Thanks in advance!

Charlie
