8 piece cane pole
<p>Seen an 8 piece cane pole in a Japanese Bitterling Fishing blog and couldn&#39;t find a website which sold them so when I had access to some cane growing in a friends yard I decided to make my own.</p> <p>Should work great for traveling cause the pole wont take up much room. Plus when sight fishing close to shore I can choose the length of my rod by either using just the tip piece or the first 3 sections or all eight. The entire rod is made of cane even the connecting pegs inside the cane is cane.</p> <p>This is only my first rod and was a learning experince as I had no instructions to follow but only a pic of the rod in someones blog so I know the rods to follow should look better and be of better quality.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="[IMG]http://i1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii535/catfishcain/8canepole.jpg[/IMG]" /></p> <p><a href="[IMG]http://i1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii535/catfishcain/canepolewhole.jpg[/IMG]"><img alt="" src="[IMG]http://i1258.photobucket.com/albums/ii535/catfishcain/canepolewhole.jpg[/IMG]" /></a></p>

I can't see your photos, but would like to. Can you repost them? I would also like to see your "one Yen" fish.

Last I had looked there were no comments. And yeah I can't see the pics either, not sure what's wrong. Okay I'm not sure how to post pics on here, I've done it in the past but can't figure it out this time. Maybe the links will work

Hmmm... I tried clicking the link but it just says 'page not found'. try using the image tool on the toolbar thingie at the top of the text editor and paste the 'direct link' from photobucket into the url box, its the code above the img code. hope this helps.

It doesn't matter what you're fishing for, just as long as you're out there doing it.

Thanks for the comment and
Thanks for the comment and help getting the pic up. TheHugbot, thanks also cause after you explained it I remember doing that before to get a pic up. I made a few more poles just incase that one broke and even made one about 3' to 4' that breaks down to about 5" sections to where I can fit it in my pocket. I want to make one with each piece the same length. The ones I made I couldn't make the same length cause I kept running into divides (the things that make the ridges in the cane).
