    Thought this was going to be about setting pipes for catfish.

    There weren't any close ups but it was tapered. Regular pvc is not tapered.

    There aren't many videos on making a pvc rod. This one is crude but I can see how you could make a lot better one.

    What you have to do is take a series of larger to smaller pieces and fit them together.
