ok, im getting frustrated. I am trying to fish some 14/2 wire down my wall from the attic to the kitchen to install a dimmer switch for track lighting. Heres the catch, i cant use fish tape because its too flimsy and it gets caught on the insulation and cant punch through the insulation. Im trying to use some fish stix but i have very limited space in the attic because where im trying to fish it to is along an outside wall down a hole made for the vent pipe. the hole is big enough for the wire but i just cant get the fish stix bent enough to go down. In the kitchen, i have a hole cut for the box but i cant use the stix there either because the box is right above the counter. therefore i am getting very frustrated because im running out of options. Anyone with any advice or options please let me know. It will be greatly appreciated!!!

In no particular order:

* Cut more holes between the ceiling and the switch location to fish wires. Patch when finished.

* Use a small diameter fish rod that is more flexible

* take a longer route through an interior wall and up thru the floor (assuming you are not on a slab)
