<p>I want to make my boys a fishing pole to catch some fake fish (felt, probably). I have a 2 year old that is inventive and eats everything so I won't even bring a magnet into the house. Is there something else I can use to get the fish to stick to the pole? I was thinking velcro, but I just don't think that would work well enough. Thanks!</p>

<p>What about a cup hook and a big sturdy wire loop on the fish?</p>

<p>on the fish i would use metal washers and they work perfectly. they can be put inside if you have a strong magnet or outside as lips for them. on the fishing pole you can get a big magnet one there is ones shaped like a horseshoe style. <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fhttp-ecx-images-amazon-com-images-610xL17ZAVL-731009%2Fdp%2FB001CT83XY%2Fref%3Dsr_1_10%3Fs%3Dtoys-and-games%26ie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1293864051%26sr%3D1-10" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/http-ecx-images-amazon-com-images-610xL17ZAVL-731009/dp/B001CT83XY/ref=sr_1_10?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1293864051&sr=1-10</a><span style="display:none;"> </span></p>

<p>My two year old only plays the fishing game with me, so I'm not really worried about her managing to suddenly decide to chew the well-wrapped magnet off the end of the string.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I used the magnet from inside a computer hard drive. It's strong enough to pick up a paper clip through about 8 layers of tape and a paper fish. It's about 3mm by 2mm.</p>

<p>If your fish weren't felt, you could tape paper clips on them to pick up with a hook.</p>
