Re: Ice Rod Build: A fly rod tip, pool noodle, pen, and a giant Rainbow Trout
I have made a few using broken rods as well. FishUSA has some pretty nice sensitive short ice fishing rods like the HT Enterprises Ice Blue line (18 inches and longer) with spring bobber like tip for under $10. The four I have were shipped from those folks in a short tube I think. Yesterday up on Diamond Lake my only fish was on one of those 24 inch rods... a nice 13 inch Tiger Trout,,,that went back to hunt for Tui Chub and shiners.
