    nice work guys oh one thing did the guy who cut himself skip the part about using wood??? a lesson in its own. read carefully. And it is unfortunate that one needs to learn this way!

    Thanks for posting this - love it ... 
    I am going to make a bunch while I watch the ice melt :)

    Happy fishing

    Nice, i been carving wood for a while and a tip is to start with pink foam insulation. Doing that will gill you something to look at while carving the wood.

     Great post, a good simple solution and a money saver too!

    And I didn't paint it well because I'm not arty!  Cheers from New Zealand
