Altoids fishing device

I saw the pocket fishing pole  www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Sized-Fishing-Rod-and-Reel/  And really liked the idea but i wanted something stronger. I reallly like Altoids so i made this. It may not look like it but this is pocket sized. It needs a little sanding but it works. ENJOY!
You should enter it in the summer water sports challenge.

Good idea!
I just finished the 'ible. Here's link: Fishing with altoids
I am making my own (with some improvements of coarse). I will post a link here when I am finished. Mine has an actual reel.

Wow. You REALLY didn't want the insides to go anywhere no matter what happened with that much J.B. Weld.

Is there anyway you can zoom in on the inside workings more . I am finding it hard to see how you put it together.

i just took an l bracket and stuck a smooth bolt through. the i jb welded a washer so it wont come off here is a dark picture until i get a new one.
