Crafty Fishin'

For our 5 year anniversary (yesterday), Travis gave me a pumpkin fishin' pole and tackle!  What makes it a pumpkin fishin' pole and not just a regular fishing pole?  Because it is pumpkin orange!  And because it belongs to yours truly!  Of course!  ;)

I didn't have much spare time today, but I did manage to squeeze in a fishin' lure that I made from found and collected objects.  The hook was in the tackle that Travis bought me.  To it, I added:

  • A metal bottle cap
  • A bead inside (to keep the hook in place and to mount danglers to)
  • 2 square nuts (they are shiny and clank together in the water)

How did it fan out against the store bought lures?  Well, it got stuck in the reeds with the others!  LOL  I knew we shouldn't have fished at low tide!  That's what we get for no patience!  The reeds won the battle, but we will win the war!!!  :)

I would love to know how it works on a good fishing day, my husband enjoys fishing and all the equipment can amount to more $$$ than we should spend. Maybe I an make some for him!
