Trad Floats and Some Quarry

I've just bought some hand-made traditional floats, cane and balsa avons and wagglers as well as some goose quill "Wottons". Checking out a local stillwater (10 mins from house) I spotted over 20 potential targets for the Wottons lazing in about 3 ft of water amongst weed.
I'll be back there soon for an evening mooch.


  1. Those goose Quills look superb and it seems you have found a rather nice bit of water to put them to use on. How much did they cost if I might ask David?

  2. £8.50 for the 4 plus a little bit for postage. If you're interested I can send you the link. (No commission honest!)

    1. Sorry about the late reply David, could you pass me a link, if you would be so kind.

  3. I love hand made floats - so much more character about them. I've dabbled with making some over the past couple of years and I rarely use anything other than my own floats now. They are surprisingly cheap and easy to make - once you learn from your failures! I'll post some pictures one day.

    I do like the look of those quills though. Have fun using them!
