This is a tutorial making your own Linux Fish, as seen on Think Geek. It's perfect for the Linux fan on your list, and can also be easily made into a geeky Christmas tree ornament. I made this because my brother is a big Linux fan and I was in need of a sweet Christmas present.

Step 1: Get Your Supplies & Heat Up Your Iron

For this project, you will need:
~A Spool of Solder
~A Soldering Iron
~Needle nose pliers to bend the solder into shape
~A Dremel, sander, or sandpaper

Heat up the iron and get ready to go!
Although your welding/artistic skills could be a lot better...a lot...it's still a cool concept.I'd use a template of some sort next time to make everything neater/less wobbly.
Nice! Very simple to make! Anybody who likes Linux anyway has a bunch of soldering items lying somewhere, so this instructable is for the perfect geek I'd try printing out a template first then bend the solder thingy based on it. Try not to solder on the template tho, remember paper is flammable..
xD i could do this but to much work lols
Now, you just have to figure out a way to convert those normal car fish into Linux fish. Think about that, booting Linux on a car fish!
Haha, that would be amazing.
Psst, use silver pinstriping.
That's alot of solder, perhaps I'll do something like this later with old wire coat hangers... there's always a bunch of those lying around :)
Thanks, and good idea!
I politely disagree with HamO. He probably plays cards with Gates.
Your LINUX fish is backwards (sdrawkcab). The X should be at the head of the fish.
