Home made rod holder that my buddy John seems to like. I took a plastic rod from an old venetian blind, duct taped a cloths pin to it... and it works just fine.

Good idea we have several small wineries in the area. But what fun is that besides I usually buy local Maryland wine. Just trying to support the local community.

Great float Papa, go to your local winery or anywhere they have wine tastings and ask for the used corks. They will give or sell you really cheap the used corks. The synthetic corks work well too.

Yeah these catch fish as well as the store bought ones and are quick to make. I put a strip of orange duct tape around the top makes it easier to see. But the best part is drinking the wine so I can use the cork!

if it catches lots of fish and doesn't lose too many ,stick with it . I haven't made any floats so hats off to you .

Comment by Papa Turner on June 30, 2014 at 12:24pm

I might try sanding the next cork bobber. But I find these cast well and seem to float just fine.
