The wood rod tip is actually an old bamboo fly rod tip that was broke...
As for patterns, just print the picture and resize it to the ruler in the second pic, and there is a pattern.  Should work perfect.

I think I'll just order fiberglass blanks from Jann's or from Mud Hole.  Or, I have a few broken rods downstairs.  That would work.

Looked like a first gen Fish Trap, with white canvas.  Loved the wood sled.

Well I guess I can try it that way. The ruler picture is kind of deceiving is it 12 or 13 inches long?

I already drew mine up on graph paper.  I went down the middle at 12 1/2".

Picked these up off of eBay last fall.  The guy quit making them and I got in just under the deadline.  Haven't used 'em yet, but I swear I will before the season is out.

Thanks one and all.  What a great bunch of replies.  That is awesome silvercreeker.  I will have to cut paste and such and use it as a pattern.  May I?

I make and sell Green Hornets at Flea Markets, I also have a couple hanging in my Steakhouse. People love em' and I enjoy making them and seeing folks reactions. I buy old rods at auctions and garage sales and use the tips for the Hornets, I also try and use the old style thread fishing line that's multi colored to add to the nostalgic effect. I put them together in the shop and paint em up out at the cabin, start a fire and paint another batch of Green Hornets. Not a bad way to spend a winters evening ;D

One question...how do you mount the fiberglass into the handle to keep it from spinning or falling out?

If I'm not fishing or hunting right now, you can bet that I\'m thinking about it!

The measurement in the bottom pic is 13 & 3/8" from beak to tail.
I mount the rods in the beak by drilling in 2 inches and then dipping the rod end in epoxy.  When dry, it will never come out.
Just remember, get good straigt grain wood.

I drill in like silver does and I glue my rod ends in with F-26 construction adhesive.

I thought it looked like 12 3/8.  Is this a typo or is it the camera angle?  I too had to get out the movie after reading this post.  I thought it looked like the eyes of the rod ran down the left side of the pole.  Did anyone else notice this?  It makes sense being the line comes off the left side of the spool.  There is a good shot of it when he goes into his shanty and he layes it down, be ready to pause and you'll get a good look at it. Is the body a dark red?  I may have to try making one also.  Thanks for sharing, Great Job!!!

I just made a full size pattern from the picture.  I printed the picture then took it to a copier, selected 11x17 paper and copied at 146%.  This came out very close if you compare a ruler to the one in the picture.

i just printed, cut out, trace, go around again making it bigger, go around again making it bigger, then cut out. BOOM!! you got yourself a nice template.

The camera angle makes the measurement look shorter.  I rechecked the movie on bluray and 40 inch tv.  The eyelits are on top, the foot of the eyelits appear to wrap around and give the illusion that the eyelits are side mounts.
