Good Use For Old Fishing Line

Recommended Posts

I seen the cutest little Christmas tree made out of fishing line this year. You take a round peice of wood for the base of the tree. A wooden dowel for the hiegth of the tree that attaches to the middle of the round peice of wood. Pound lots of little nails to the base of the tree and one at the top of the dowel and wrap fishing line up and down until its completly full. You put lights and tinsel around the dowel in the middle. The lights give off a real pretty reflection agaisnt the line. I wouldn't use line that was used, but the left over stuff that didn't get spooled. It was really neat, but I just wonder what esle a person could make instead of a tree the lights make a really cool reflection against the fishing line.

hi mary ! i have never seen one of those trees, but they sound cool ! i don't think you will get much reflection from mono. i think those new little rice lights that came out would be just perfect .( they are about a third the size of the small lights,but a kind of hard to find ) del

HI Del, I'm pretty sure it was mono fishing line and it was really cool. It gave off an ark reflection against the line. I'm trying to think up something to do besides a tree so it could be a decoration for any time. Yes I've seen them lights. They use them in the Christmas villages. I think the regular lights would work best in this though. It stood about a ft to 2 ft high.

If you use florescent line it will light up under a black light, should look pretty cool Eh.

We used to make giant spider webs from florescent mono. When you turned on the black light the web strands looked as big as 1/4 rope. A neat tip for Halloween next year.

Phyl, I just might do that make a fish that is. It would make a nice little light up at the camper. Right now I'm crocheting doilies for my girls for Valentines day. By next month all my crafting will turn into fish things. By the end of Febuary I usally start getting the itch to go fishing.

Hey Mary you have way more patience than I do! So when you get this fish done you have to take a picture of it and post it. How about a sail boat? So, I am off to print the Xmas pictures we took and try to frame them.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
