Step 2: Lets Get Started.

to start off you need to cut the pipe to what size you want it to be. since the pipe is going to act a the rod and reel its important to make sure you cut the pipe so its most comfortable for you.

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.

Yeah it barely takes up any room and you'd be surprised how much you can fit down in it. Thanks I appreciate it! If you make one I'd love to see it.

Thank you, and yes so far that seems to be the best way to cast. I'm going to try and get a video up of me casting it soon.
love it, I use to make impromptu reels with soda cans I'm assuming you cast by swinging with one hand like a helicopter and letting the line spool off the PVC pipe?
