Buy a cheapo fishing rod. They're made of swishy stuff. Check out auction sites and Gumtree etc.

I was thinking along similar lines. Local fishing tackle shop is likely to have all the required bits. Just a few sections of fibreglass rod, ferrules to join the sections and a cork handle. Probably cost less than half the one in the link.
