Make a 360-degree light to fish after dark safely and, in many states, legally. My young fishing buddy, Mitch Sanders, showed me one that he and his dad, Todd, made for just a few dollars. Mitch had a slimmer conduit pipe from another home project that the LED bulb fit into; I made one with a 5-foot section of 1 1/4-inch black plastic plumbing pipe. The larger-diameter pipe fit perfectly into a tackle crate rod holder — no rattling around. I plan to add some reflective tape and a flag.
