Me and a friend are making floats, cane rods and other traditional tackle at the moment. We have a website designed but just putting the finishing touches to our business plans right now before we make it live.

Bit of a shameless plug but we have many handmade floats ready for sale or they can be made to order. Here's a taster...






PM me if anyone is interested.

Cheers
Adam

i'd go for avons ,in verious sizes ,types and colours too suite differing conditions ,when i have floats for myself i have one in each coloured tip and as they're held on with float rubbers its easy too change floats without upsetting shotting .

i do orange ,red ,yellow tip colours ,with black as a optional colour ,at the moment i can have ,cane stemed avons & crowquill avons ,both have balsa bodies as in the pictures above (cork and styrofoam bodies will be available soon) and all the same price 3 inc P&P i't would take me about a week or so too complete the cane avons & crow quills ,as i work so only do them at night


Quote:
if you want some floats strait away , do have some medium sized crowquills in either half painted or clean bodied style.
photo of them in production last year ,now completed they take between 6-8 bb ,i'd have too check how many of each i have left


i also have a few odd floats left


i'll get pictures of all the ready made floats up tomorrow

Those are the handy work of George Lockhart and an extremely worthy cause.
