Build a Summer Camp Fishing Pole Holder

We just returned from summer camp and have a ton of great photos and ideas to share.

One of them is this simple fishing pole holder. It’s a stump with 1″ holes drilled into it to hold fishing rods made of sticks. These are the simplest of fishing rods and the kids tie string for lines and use hot dogs for bait. They mostly just grab crawdads at the end of the pier but some of them were catching a few trout. This reminds us of what Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer might use to go fishing. It doesn’t get any simpler and is still a ton of fun!

Have you taken your kids fishing?
