How do you wire a 90 degree fish?

What can I feed wire through conduit?
Use a metal or fiberglass fish tape or snake.
If the conduit run is long, has several bends, has more than 25% of its area filled with wires, etc., the strength and flexibility offered by a fish tape or snake will make pushing into the conduit much easier.
