Get a piece of 10lb or stronger test line. Cut it a bit more the twice as long as your rod blank. Tie one end near the handle. Tape over the knot and down to the base to make your hand grip. Duct tape works perfectly.

Step 3: Take the line up and along the rod taping it down at least twice before the tip. Once you reach the tip tie it off again. Cover this knot with tape as well.
