How Do You Make a Fake Fishing Pole?

Making a fake fishing pole is fairly simple, and is often done to give the illusion of fishing without actually using a real pole. This can be useful for people who don’t have access to a real fishing pole or for decorating a room. All you’ll need is something that looks like a pole, some string, and a hook.

The first step in creating a fake fishing pole is to find something that resembles an actual pole. This could be anything from a stick to an old broom handle. You can even use something like a PVC pipe if you want to get creative.

Whatever you choose, make sure it’s long enough so that it looks like an actual pole when you’re finished.

Next, tie some string onto the end of your “pole”. Depending on how realistic you want your fake fishing pole to look, you may want to use different colors of string or even different types of knots. You can also add weights or bobbers if desired.

The last step is to attach a hook at the end of the string. This can be done with some wire or even with a safety pin if that’s all you have available. Make sure the hook is securely attached so it won’t come off when “fishing” with your fake pole.


Making a fake fishing pole is easy and requires no special tools or materials. All you need is something that looks like an actual fishing pole, some string, and a hook. With these few items, anyone can create their own fake fishing pole in just minutes.
