25-Sport Fishing Pole

The fishing pole was part of an amusement center called Putt-and-Bump. It is located by the miniature golf course. Unfortunately, this establishment has closed.

Sport fishing pole.

25-Sport Fishing Pole

A giant fishing pole is built out of items from multiple sports: basketball hoops for the line guides, water ski tow rope for the line, hockey sticks on the crank. An accompanying sign says that 25 sports are represented. Can you find them all? It is well-weathered and I suspect that some parts may be missing.

Perhaps the money from that obnoxious Pepsi logo placement will be used to restore the attraction.
