    Gone Fishing

    Cheers :beerchug: Madriverrob and santaman2000 I've only just stopped 'cracking' the fly off, but can still cast superb knots in the leader :confused: I'd done a rubish roll cast to get some line out so did another to get some of the snakey bends out and the Tiger took the Fly on the drop and...

    Teddys' Avons

    is that 4" overall ? I've never made floats before but thought Avons had a long stem, to act as a keel, then a shorter tip above the body for visability as you 'trot' down a river ? my longest rod at the moment is only 8' but am looking to get a 12' then the line goes to the float and not into...

    Reed Fishing Floats

    Thought I'd have a play with the Whipping tool but first I made some Bobbin holders rather than keep swaping cotton then I had the idea to make them semi self cocking to save shotting on the line I'm off down the River this afternoon, one of the benefits of being an OAP

    Reed Fishing Floats

    Cheers :beerchug: maybe a small clear tube at the top so the tip is Orange Black Orange, though I was 'trotting' it down the local river (Aire at Skipton) yesterday and it was visible a long way. Caught a nice Grayling and a small Brow Trout on worm :)

    Reed Fishing Floats

    Cheers :beerchug: I was thinking of using a piece of black silicon rubber tubing say 1/2" long that just fits over the orange tip, thread this on the line first then through the float eye, that way the float can be slid up or down the line to adjust depth. But being new to float fishing I'd...

    Reed Fishing Floats

    When making the Reed floats I just happened to find an Oak apple http://https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_apple in my waistcoat pocket, so gave it a try, it worked that well I went out on an ‘Oak Apple’ expedition and managed to find some down the old disused railway line and seen as this was...

    Reed Fishing Floats

    Cheers :beerchug: for that I've just welded up a hand drill Whipping tool and will get some photo's up soon, these are the first Floats I've made so it's a bit re-inventing the wheel as I go along :confused: Some of them I added lead shot down the Reed before adding the tip and stem to make...
