When an ol' man has a little time on his hands and the weather is nasty outside ...
His thoughts turn to FLY FISHING of course ...
Yeah, I know I could have spent around $40.00 on a Factory Fly Line cleaning doo-dad.
But, since I had ALL the "stuff" in the garage, utility building, or in a JUNKE'
box / drawer.
Hence the Gordie's Mark 1 Line Cleaning Doo-Hickey
Wood left over from other projects in the past.
Cut down / modified Paint Stir stick from Home Depot ( Spool Crank )
Knob from long forgotten craft project
Plated Eye Bolt from Ham Radio antenna support projects
Heat Shrink tubing over the eye bolt threads .. don't wanna knick the fly line.
Other odds and ends hardware from the "box" .. saved for "I'll need that someday."
OLD, beyond help / used Fly Rod that gave up the Reel Seat for this project.
Take up Spool that was salvaged from the trash at a Fly Shop ... "Hey, Mike, ya gonna throw that away?"
Bottom covered in some brand of the Rubber type draw liner / shelf liner, that the wife won't miss, I hope.
Epoxy to hold things in place with more hidden hardware too ..
Elmer's Glue for the Scratch Stop Thingy on the bottom ..
Time in the shop to play ... Two hours or so .. who's counting anyway?
Fly Fishing Whatever's that can be useful ... Priceless
Could have done a better job on height ratios, etc.? Oh well ... it still works.
