How Do You Make a Fishing Rod With a Stick?

Making your own fishing rod with a stick can be a great way to save money and time. It is also an excellent way to get creative and craft something unique.

It may sound intimidating at first, but creating your own fishing rod is actually quite simple. All you need is some basic materials, a bit of imagination, and some patience.

First, you will need to find the perfect stick for your rod. Look for one that is roughly the same length as the type of rod you would like to make.

You can use any type of wood, such as birch or ash, but make sure it is light enough for you to comfortably hold. Once you have your stick, you will need to sand it down until it is smooth.

Next, you will need some other materials such as twine, duct tape or wire ties. You can use these items to secure the twine along the length of the stick and create guides for your line. If desired, you can also add a reel seat or handle onto the end of the stick.

Once all of these elements have been added and secured in place, itโ€™s time to add line and lures. Start by tying a loop knot at one end of the twine and then threading your line through all of the guides along the stick until it reaches the other end. Finally, attach any lures you want to use at this point.


Making a fishing rod with a stick can be an enjoyable project that allows you to express yourself while saving money and time. With just a few basic materials and some imagination you can create something truly unique that will last many trips out on the water. All that’s left now is to cast off and enjoy your new fishing rod!
