#1 is a little wooden dowel that I epoxied a together. going to use this for stuff when i'm going for bugs. i made a grip of half hitched cord and heat shrink.

#2 is a section of graphite fishing rod. this is going to be used for halibut in super low vis. it has a homemade sliptip. the slip tip is made from a knitting needle with a rod inside.

#3 is a section of a fiber glass fishing rod. it is 2 piece so it fits in my game bag and i can pull it out when i see a rockfish or cab. the connection i have is just a male /female thing and it isn't two strong. any ideas on how to improve.?

That sliptip one is sick.

nice ly done..I love seeing some DIY stuff.

the little guy looks like it would be perfect for a backup too, for when the gun shaft is in the fish but you need another hit to subdue 'em..
