Making A Tiny Fishing Pole In A Simple Steps
It is not hard to make a fishing pole at home, but certainly, you have to follow some steps and arrange some materials. Follow the steps below to make a fishing pole quickly.
Manage Materials to make a small fishing pole
You have to arrange and gather all the materials needed for a fishing pole. Since you are manufacturing this pole at home, so we are suggesting you some easy to find materials in the following list:
- Small antenna- ( this will be used as the pole)
- 1 round stick pen-(this will be used as the pole handle)
- Duct Tape
- 1 small clip- (this will be used to clip over the pen barrel)
- 1 bolt- (for fitting a hole between the clip and handle)
- 2 big washers & 3 small washers – ( this will be used for covering the round binding parts)
- Hot glue-(used for attaching parts)
- Paper clip
- 1 swivel
- 1 hook
Now that you have the equipment you need for your fishing pole, you can follow these steps to build a fishing pole:
The pen will be used as the handle, so you have to remove all the inks and the tip smoothly by piler or by yourself (if you can).
Fill a bit of hot glue in the center hole of your pens tube. The antenna will be used as the pole, so push the thin antenna’s little part in the empty center area of the pens back end and let it stick with the glue.
Attaching The Reel With The Handle
Now you have to clip the binder clip with the edge of a pen by attaching them with hot glue.
- Put two small washers and adjust them in two metal sides of the binder clip. Before applying the glue, keep in mind to set the washers center hole and the clip bars center hole in the same place.
- Since it is time to use the big washers, you have to place them in the center of the binder clip in a certain position so that its centers are matched with the small washers centers. After posing them in the required position, put a bolt through the center hole of the reel (all washers), which will act like a fishing line spool.
- Screw a small nut in the narrow part of the bolt for stability, which will strengthen the reel when holding a fish.
Fishing line guides
Fishing lines have to be attached in small clips within every low range for stability. An amusing trick you can use is using three small washers and sticking them in a within a divided range of the pole.
Attach the washers with wire by extracting the wire through the hole of the washer and binding it with the pole in a V shape. Put the fishing line through the holes of the washer and check if they are strongly tied to hold a fish. You can also put some hot glue for more holding strength.
The washers must be tied in a calculated place. You have to put the first washer in the starting edge of the pole and the last washer in the ending edge of the pole. Put the second washer in the center of the pole.
This is an easy and fun task as you have to adjust the fishing line around your small fishing pole. Firstly you have to put some do tie the whole fishing line in between the reels big washers. Please put them in the middle of the washers and tie a double knot. An easy way to do this is to hold the line and roll the handle like in a continuous spinning wheel.
Now roll out some part of your fishing line and take them to the top of the pole through the small washers center holes. If this step is done properly, setting up the fishing pole will become more easier. So, make sure you’re doing it perfectly.
Adding Hook With The Fishing Line
This is the last part of your procedure to start fishing with your fishing pole. After getting your fishing line through the small washers, tie them to the swivel.
You have to use a Palomar knot to tie it with the swivel. You can also attach different types of hooks, spinners, etc. for use as your swivel.
Avoid getting anything stuck with you through glue. Glue is a hazardous product that might stick with your body for a long time if you do not weep them out within a short time.
