Main Materials used are : Bamboo ice cream stick LONG one for the rod , Kite reel for the reel ~ , hardware wire for guides and tip

Good attempt on your rod and reel builing, especially from a young lad. :) I have that kite reel too that I use for live baiting at jetties. :p We shall see how your tackle performs when put to the test. :nod:
