Very nice! I like the use of the old rod/reel for the lamp.

These are very nice projects and are quite unique. The clock and the lamp are certainly ones that any fisherman would appreciate.

Thanks for the post.

Now what would be really cool is if the lamp turned on and off by cranking the reel!

That must be hard to reel in a fish, especially with that tiny net. (haha) Cool projects.
