Nothing really-- just what it was intended to do- Catch fish.

Give the thin end to your hiking partner and have him follow you, whipping you with it if you slow down. Great motivational tool :P

bear bag hanging on 07/01/2009 09:23:46 MDT Print View

Carry 50' or so of the backing line you used on your reel. Bring a small lead weight (enough to pull the line down). Use your rod and casting skills to launch the weight tied to the backing up over the tree limb where you plan to hang your food. Tie the bear bag hanging line to the lose end of the backing line and pull it up over the limb. No need to throw any more rocks!.
No kidding. I made a sling shot using the method of tarp line tensioners I read about here and two Easton tent stakes. With only one shot I can get line pretty high up into the trees.

Do not connect the loops in the middle of the tube and you can pull it back for sling shot use!

Clip a red Photon Freedom to the end of the fishing pole, set it in strobe mode, and tie the base of the pole to your tarp pole.

What does this do, you ask?

Why, it protects your campsite from low-flying aircraft!
