have you ever been driving down a road or walking through the woods and seen a piece of water you'd love to fish? Well with my new pvc pocket fishing kit you can do just that! its small enough to toss in your car or your backpack so its there when you need or want it most.
so lets get started on showing how its done!
also please vote for me as I am entering the outdoors contest!!
Step 1: Gathering Your Materials
here is what I used.
¤ 3/4 inch pvc pipe
¤ two end caps
¤ Hack saw
¤ electric tape
¤ soldering iron
¤ 550 paracord
¤ fishing line
¤ hooks and sinkers
Step 2: Lets Get Started.
while making mine I cut it to about 8 inches long. not only does that give me plenty f room for my hand, it also gives plenty of room for line.
after cutting it I smoothed out the edges with sandpaper. mainly to get all the burrs removed. then a sanded one end. the picture shows the end I sanded. this was to make that end removable. if you do t sand it down it is extremely difficult to get the end off. especially if you need to do it in a pinch.
Step 3: Get a Handle on It
take your cordage and put the ends through the hole so the knt is on the inside of the end cap. after that you can figure out how big your loop needs to be. once you've don't that tie a simple knot I. it so it won't come undone.
now make sure the loop is big enough, if not just undo the knot and remake it until you get the size you need.
Step 4: Line Up
You can use whatever kind of line you loke for this.
I used stren stamina 50 pound mono for mine. I used this because there is no actual rod or reel so habing the extra strength is nice. I also put electric tape od the kmow that way the line won't get caught on it while casting.
Step 5: Rig Up
Step 6: Finishing Up
now you have yourself a stow away pocket fishing kit. ho throw it in your day pack or or car.
Step 7: Conclusion
also as soon as I can I will put up a video of me casting it.
