    I'm sure most of us have seen the flying reaper scare on You Tube. I know he used fishing line and a hexacopter. I want to do This same scare on a much lower level; using a premade lightweight ( 4oz.) Reaper decoration. I am sure I won't need a $1000 hexacopter for his stunt . What would be...

  6. Static: Fishing Line Help Needed

    Halloween Props
    I tested out a quick, easy ghost I plan to hang from the ceiling. It's nothing more than a styrofoam head, a wire hanger, and a stained white sheet. I had it hanging with an 8-pound. fishing line. It looked great for about five minutes. But when I shifted it slightly so the shoulders were turned...
  7. Fishing For Suggestions

    General Halloween

I loved the noise she made for awhile but come to find out it was the fishing line slowly getting dirty in the eye hooks and then snapping. I have to replace my fishing lines maybe..... 2 or 3...
