Just thought i would share this with others!
Take a walk in any Beech wood and you should be able to find good dead branches. The best time to go is just after a high wind,this way they are fresh and not had chance to go rotten/fungussed
1, take your branches and sand/scrape them back so there is no soft bits.
2, Lay them out how you want them to look.
3, At this point some might like to boil the parts.( I chose not to and have had no problems)
4, Drill some small holes where the branches touch,Either cut or drill a larger hole at the back this is to take the plastic cable-tie head.( Make sure there are no sharp parts of the cable-tie exposed to harm your fish)
5, To hide the joints and make a more impressive look you can add java moss or other plants using fishing line.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
