So I decided to make some wooden fishing rods and promptly ordered some magnets while I was sipping my tea in Parish Breakfast - the joys of modern technology and mobile internet shopping.
|Bargain from Ebay|
Once the magnets arrived I used some bbq skewers to form the rod and by cutting the ends off - for safety - and sticking together with sellotape. Then I took some string and wrapped it round the ends to cover the tape.
At one end I left two ends of the string so that I could do a simple knot repeatedly to form a rope effect until the length of the rope was long enough to dangle a magnet at the end.
Here is the fishing rod:
"And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men"
Matthew 4:19 KJV
Until next time,
