Default Ice Rod Build: A fly rod tip, pool noodle, pen, and a giant Rainbow Trout

Ice rods are hard to come by in the PNW so I figured why not try building one from a few simple materials. This ice rod comes complete with a spring bobber and was put to the test on a fat Rainbow Trout and passed with flying colors.

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.
