I decided to make a trout fishing pole lamp. Why? I’m not sure why. I guess just because I can, well I think I can. To begin, I sketched out a design that I liked and then off to the home supply stores I went. I purchased an 18” round wood base, an 8’ foot long, ½ diameter tube, wood, ball, wire, a trout, a hot dog and coke. Oh yeah, I was hungry and ate the hot dog & drank the coke. I didn't eat the trout, it's wooded. I planned on using it as the big catch on the end of the pole.
After a lot of sawing, trimming, bending, scratching my head and re-sawing, re-trimming and then assembling, it was finished. It actually works and it wasn't too hard to make. The electrical cord is hidden and runs inside of the pole which is a tube. What I like best about the lamp is that it bends over the chair to provide light on to whatever I am reading. What do you think about the trout fishing pole lamp?

I added a red and white float and placed the light fixture on top.
The reel is antique and I added the trout.
I think the base needs something. Maybe rocks? Hope yeah enjoy. Oh yeah, if you would love a beautiful decor map of your favorite lake, river, or bay, then check-out my website leolakes.com. Makes a treasured gift for the lake lover!
