How To: Inexpensive Faux Fly Rod

Have backpack rides and fish shows lost their appeasement power? If demands for greater participation are chipping away at your USOB, consider deploying a faux fly rod. This bit of DIY stream-side gear can provide the time and elbow room you need to put the sneak on that rising rainbow around the bend.

Here’s how in 6 easy steps:

1: Place expensive, genuine fly rod with-in 100 yards of small child.

2: Grab a beer.

3: Comb through the wreckage until you find an intact segment.

4: Tie butt-end of retired leader to top-most guide loop.

5: Clip hook from old dry fly – the gaudier the better – and attach to leader.

6: Get out of the way.
