I don't know if they are still in business in the States (I'm posting from Scotland here) but when they were still on the go over here, Tandy did a very nice right angle 3.5mm minijack adaptor...
I'd always shyed away from that kind of thing but it proved invaluable for getting mics into the side of my TCD-D3 when it was in my carrying bag.
Neutrik do a very nice rewireable minjack- I've got some in gold here in the workshop- in fact I've got everything here for that.

I could make you the lead you're after and ship it for postage only if you like?

Would I need XLR male or XLR female ends on my patch cables

I did a lil research and I think I need FEMALE ends on my patch cables, right? Just wanted to be 100% sure

Thanks,

On the side you plug into the board it's a male output, so yes a female plug on the end of the cables.

Chuck...sweet adapter...

But, the female RCA patch out on your adapter is an interesting choice...I carry a Male RCA<>Male XLR and think I've used it on a soundboard once...now that once I had to ask for a mono mix because it was so thick I couldn't plug in the other one.

I guess I thought XLR or 1/4 would be much more common

Yeah, I do carry (2) 1/4" female to RCA male adapters for that RCA female output too. My experience has been that most guys are prepared for 1/4" out from the sound board. In all the years I've used them I can only remember two times when someone wanted to patch into the board after me...

I have an entire bag of cables and gender benders that I've never used, I was so excited when I got the opportunity to record live on a regular basis I just went on a shopping spree so I would not show up unprepared haha. come to find out they have EVERY output maxed out and most of them already running splitters.
I just recently found out this venue I typically record at does have ONE available 1/4 mono aux out on the SB, so even though the SB tech has no knowledge of attaching recorders to it he has been more than helpful to try to get me a good feed from it recently, however it is usually hit and miss. one band I may get all vocals/snare guitar. next band may have a perfect mix, next band may be all bass drum and bass guitar.

So it always pays off to be prepared, I have too many cables but I am glad I do, I recently trimmed down the luggage to just one 1/4 mono to 3.5mm stereo, 1/4 mono splitter, 3.5mm splitter xlr f and m plus xlr splitters and an xlr with a built in attenuator to 1/4 and that seems to cover every plug type in the club and on my recorders.

I love doing this and I read this forum continuously to learn more, I am eager to master this, it is truly a great hobby and loads of fun!
