Yesterday I Hooked fish on the pole that sticks out on the front of the little barn. It started out as a welded framework of heavy galvanized wire, and I had to sacrifice a pair of my denim jeans to make the skin out of. The purpose: to create a smile on passers by. It is 40 inches long.
There have already been a couple of the commercially made, fish shape decorative wind sock things made out of Taffeta on the pole. Taffeta does not hold up when exposed to the elements. Hopefully the denim will.
