A fish tape is a thin piece of steel wire in a flat style that is coiled in predetermined lengths and is referred to as tape. Some fish tapes come in 50' and 100' lengths. The wire is coiled in a plastic housing with the assistance of a handle mounted on the housing. There are also fiber fish tapes that are non-conductive, much safer to use when pushing into an electrical panel that has energized parts.
