    Talking The Green Hornet Ice Fishing Pole

    "The green hornet's caught more fish than you've lied about, Gustafson!"

    A $6.95 jigging pole from Wal-Mart provided the rod and reel after the original cheapo wood handle was split open to release the rod. A chunk of 1" hemlock cut and sanded with the original green hornet's "wings" modified to accept the reel. A little bit of acrylic paint and one has an "official" green hornet ice fishing pole.

    Just finished building it yesterday. Haven't fished it yet, but will soon...

    What a tribute to a classic, nice work Joat. Maybe it will help win the Trustworthy fishing derby for you.

    I will never be a "Prostaffer" its not that I am not good enough
    but its because I refuse to pimp products for free.

    My son built me one a couple of years ago after his mother and I made him watch that movie with us for the hundreth time. Took it to hope last year and had a ball slaying the pinks. I'll definatly post pics when i find them. And all along I thought my wife and I were the only die hard fans of the dynamic dou from wabashaw. next thing you know there will be a National Lampoons Cristmas Vacation following.
