OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Ever break the tip off you best rod right when you get on the lake? Dang, that makes me mad, too. I carry a couple of replacement rod tips in my little boat tool kit. But, just as sure a God makes them little green apples, I never have glue. It always dries up in the tube or something.

Well, old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and National Backlash Pickin' Champion, got smart and found a tip that is easy to implement and sure helps.

Take a look at the photo.

There's Tipster's broken rod and there's his spare tip. And, there are 2 other things in the picture. The cigarette light is easy to recognize, but that black tubing at the top is not so easy to figure. The tubing is actually 'heat-shrink' tubing used in electrical manufacture and repair. It is usually places over a splice in two electrical wires. The, by applying heat, the tubing will shrink dramatically and form a tight, almost waterproof seal around the splice.

Got the picture now? Put your Nikes on the cobblestones and get down to good old Radio Shack. Get the smallest heat shrink tubing they have. Be sure you have spare tips and a lighter, or matches. This will put a tip on permanently and you won't even have to glue it when you get home. Some rod guides are even put on this way by the manufacturers now.

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
