This is a quick instructable on how to construct a snake stick of basically the same materials professionals use.
A snake stick is a hooked tool used to immobilize, hold, and pick up snakes. Especially useful for moving or studying snakes in the wild. Also makes a serviceable walking stick.
Step 1: Materials!
Basically, I use a roller cage, a golf club handle, and some electrical tape. This is the surefire items list. How you harvest the three pieces you use can change, though they rarely deviate far from a pair of pliers or two and a Sawzall, Dremel, or pipe cutter. Almost forgot, the most important, SAFETY GOGGLES! I know I'm not your mother, (she's probably far more attractive), but trust me, red hot metal shavings are not good corneal conditioner.
