sub for fish tape?

im running a subwoofer cable thru a wall. I really dont want to buy a fish tape for just this one time job. Any ideas of what i can use instead that would work as a make shift fish tape? Its not even that great of a distance, maybe 6-8 ft.

So fast, I make speedy gonzales look like regular gonzales

if its not an insulated wall its really not that hard... Just feed the cable into the wall cavity, cut a decent size hole in the wall and use some coat hanger to grab the cable. If the cable is hard to feed, use a string with a weight. If its an exterior wall then I would get a fish tape and save the frustration...

you can get actual fish tape cheap at wholesalers on ebay or places like parts express. i saw a reel at altex for a reasonable price.

nothing beats fish tape when running cable.
