How Do You Make a Glow in the Dark Fishing Pole?

Glow in the dark fishing poles are a great way to make late night fishing trips more fun and productive. They make it easier to see your line in low light conditions and can help you identify any potential catches.

Making a glow in the dark fishing pole is relatively easy and inexpensive, and can be done with just a few simple items.

The first step is to choose a glow stick that will work best for your rod. There are many different sizes, colors, and intensities available, so you’ll want to find one that fits your needs.

Attach it to the end of your rod using strong fishing line or wire. Securely tie the glow stick to the rod so that it won’t move or fall off during casting or reeling in.

Next, you’ll need to find something to attach the glow stick to on the rod itself. You can use electrical tape, zip ties, or even duct tape if needed.

Securely wrap the chosen material around the rod and then attach the glow stick to it. If possible, try to use something thick enough so that it won’t break easily.

Once you have attached the glow stick, you need to make sure it is properly lit up. This can be done by either shaking it vigorously or pressing down on a button if available. Either way, once the glow stick is lit up it should create enough light for you to see your line at night.


Making a glow in the dark fishing pole is an easy and inexpensive way to add some extra fun and visibility on late night fishing trips. All you need is a glow stick that fits your needs, some type of material for attaching it securely onto your rod, and then some kind of means for lighting up the glow stick itself.

Once all these steps are completed, you should have a functional glowing fishing pole ready for action!
