I use to pull some thistle from the woods to check the wind; with this in mind, I decided to make a holder. A holder that will keep the thistle dry and handy. It is nice to have some thistle available any time of the year.
You only need a few thistles down (aka fluff) to find the wind direction and speed for kite flying, archery, fly-fishing. Just pull it out of holder, throw it up, and watch the direction it floats and rate at which it flies away. Cattail and milkweed seeds can also be used
Step 1: Get started
I started with some used ½ copper water pipe (other sizes could be used). Start with a piece greater than 2 inches.
