Made some fly fishing rods and some bait casters
for a bud of mine that has some plans for a fishing
lodge dio. Stretched sprue and some paint.

Baloney sliced sprue trees and stretched sprue bent in a bracket shape for the handle
on the bait caster. The fly reels are just sliced thinner with a small stretched sprue handle.
I rolled a blade on the tree back and forth to slice them..but be sure to put some tape
or the piece will fly to parts unknown..hahaha
The rods are stretched slowly and steady for length and then the handle part can be
sanded to shape.

gotta love that stuff!!! :) they look great. if you realy want to get carried away you could wrap very thin wire and make different sized eyelets for them and attach some very thin wire as line. they are to cool.
