I have been trying very hard for a very long time to come up
with a new twist on the old Chinese Sticks. When you look at the
photo above, old-timers will think I didn't succeed. It looks
just like the same old Chinese Stick design we all grew up and
grew old with. But wait! Inscrutable new secrets will unfold!
The Wizard invites a young helper to assist him to do some
fishing. The Wizard picks up the black fishing poles and shows
them to be simple smooth plastic hollow poles (do-it-yourself
plans are included to make the sticks from PVC Pipe!). The Wizard
can even blow through them.
Then the Wizard shows some white short tips. He shows his
young helper that they already have a very short fishline going
through each tip, and that they simply need some bait on the
hooks to be used for fishing. The Wizard displays a can marked
BAIT that contains some rubber worms or candy gummy worms.
The Wizard demonstrates how to tie a worm on the
hook of one of the fishing poles. Then he hands a worm to his
young helper and holds the hook so the helper can tie his worm to
the other pole. That's right. You just tie them on with a simple
knot. In the process of doing this, you have converted the two
black poles with white tips into a "regular" set of
Chinese Sticks that you can use to do all your favorite Chinese
Sticks schtick. If you don't have a favorite Chinese Sticks
routine yet, we give you a starter routine in the article.At the
end of the routine, when the strings in both sticks are stuck in
the "long" position, two cloth goldfish appear on the
ends in place of the worms you were using as "bait."
That's why this is ideal to combine with the Appearing
Goldfish in the next article, so you can transform the cloth
fish into two real live goldfish!
