Making a Survival Fishing Pole
Hello My Friends!!!
I came across a easy project that can be made simply with some PVC pipe....I have thought a lot about the future lately, and realize that we are not prepared for a natural disaster or anything that would force us to rely on our skills to survive. I thought I would start making a survival kit......A back pack that could be grabbed in a heart beat and contain everything that was needed to survive for a short period of time. Heaven forbid we should ever need it, but, it would be there for us.
This will be a survival fishing pole for the back pack. I will be gluing all these pieces together with the exception of the end cap. This can be unscrewed and inside will contain sinkers, swivels, lures, floats and hooks. On the outside of this will be the fishing line and will be used as the reel when I am done. The pieces are a 1 1/4 in. cap, a threaded coupler, a piece of PVC pipe about 7 inches long, and a end plug. When I am done I will show a picture of it completed and will be testing it out hopefully Sunday, if the weather isn't to bad!!!!
