Hello mate. I made my own float box from a piece of ply wood and some pine baton from B&Q. It took about 1.5 hours to make and I think it looks the business. It's varnished, so it's hard wearing and has different sized insert compartments for different size floats, but if you can get hold of the foam and don't mind making it yourself, it costs pretty much nothing.

I think i remember seeing a box on floats direct... but i aint sure whether it was only available when you bought a selection of floats from them..... but i have also seen a few on ebay for sale...maybe worth a browse ?

Hi Matt [:)]


You could try here:

Of course if that's not what your looking for Bennets of Sheffield do them, they can be obtained in four different styles according to requirements.
Floats direct also do them and I believe you can choose your own floats to go in there.

Hope this helps you.

Jon, yeah a tube may be quicker, easier and lighter, but the problem is that the floats kept in there tend to roll together and clatter about chipping the paint and breaking them.
Well this is what I've found anyway, I use the freebie one from Improve Your Coarse Fishing, and sticking foam in the ends doesn't help either. So I shall be seeing about getting one soon.

Yeah I know what you mean Jon [:)]

I try for all I'm worth to keep my box tidy, and usually I can which means I can get a lot of kit in it, BUT I very often have extra hands who are not quite as careful, or tidy as me.[:(]
They often go wading in sending everything flying and wonder why I tell them off.[:p][;)]
