Still a few Seymo new bait droppers for sale on Ebay.

I had a look Ray....the only listing I could find for them were selling other types.

Mike...I'll give them a bell, do you know when they're closing and is there any good deals going?

Jason, think he shuts first week of October, not too sure what's happening with the stock. Very sad day for fishing, end of an era.

I'm sure another tackle company will see the opportunity and start manufacturing some.

Luke, was referring to the closure of Joe Taylors tackle shop as the sad event, he is certainly gonna be missed by everyone in this area.

Yes, me too. I'm down to my last Seymo dropper and dreading what will happen when I inevitably lose it. I've got a few Dinsmores but they really are dreadful. (They fail to open properly about 50% of the time).

I've tried to find Christophe Pelhate on Facebook but only found stuff in French and it looks like a different individual altogether as there's no mention of angling. Any idea how to contact the right CP?

He's all over Facebook, or was...think he has connections with the Barbel Society too.

He was selling them at the Barbel Society show back in June. I had a look at one, I'm not so sure about them, with the fins etc. I'd question how quickly they'd reach the bottom on the Lower Severn with 10ft on it, my Seymo's go straight down, I don't think the Pelhate ones would.

they're also £20 a pop.....not exactly cheap.

well luckily just got the last 4 seymo's from JK tackle...with 20% off as they're closing down.

didn't realise that seymo had actually been shut down due to the main company being bought out by sports direct...so there's a market out there for a well built larger dropper, something dinsmores could perhaps do seeing as they re done the thamsely.
