What did you make? : I made a jig rod for ice fishing. The Materials needed Are a ice rod blank (you could buy one or just make one from the tip of an old rod.), some thread, superglue, two rod guides (again you can buy these or get them from a rod.), a jig reel (drill holes in the ends as shown.),and a peice of scrap wood to make into a handle.
The tools you will need are scissors, a bench vice, a old towel a screwdriver, some sandpaper, a rasp , a fly-tying bobbin (optional) and a pair of pliers (optional)
How Did You Make It?: I got the idea to make this project when I steped on the lower half of my expesive rod, i didn't want to throw away the other half so I decided to make it into a jig rod.
Where Did You Make It?: I made this at my house. Mainly I made it because I enjoy fishing.
What did you learn?: The project went smoothly except I accidentally crushed the end of the blank in my bench vice.
