It has been storming here all morning so I put one together and took a couple of pictures of it. I was able to get the fiberglass poles free from a friend that runs a golf course. They replace the poles on occassion. I sawed off the brass fitting at the base at a 45 degree angle so that it will go into the sand easier. I used 400lb. mono for the line because I had a bunch leftover from Texas rigging my duck decoys. The top of the pole has a fine threaded end, so I made a loop in the mono and used a double barrel crimp sleeve to secure the loop to the top of the pole. Next I used a nylon lock nut to put over the loop to secure it to the pole. Then I slipped a sinker on the other end of the line, placed a snap swivel on it and crimped my sleeve. I used a heavy snap swivel so that you can change hooks without having to re-crimp. I used the "replace divots" flag on the pole to write my name & address on the pole. Also there is a thick rubber "washer" under the flag (to prevent it from sliding down the pole). that I kept on there to secure the hook when transporting the pole. In all it was pretty easy and cheap to make.
