Well it all started before Christmas, reading that bloody thread thats posted as a sticky on all things float making. Now I’m not going to claim to be making my own floats but I can assemble them from parts and once you get the recipe right length of stem weight of eye hollow or solid then you can put together just about everything you need. After a bit of trial and error and testing the “Prototypes” in fish to pole combat ,I’ve scrapped some patterns, changed and tweaked, and still will, but one things for sure catching fish on floats you made is very satisfying and I for one don’t think I will ever buy another shop bought float. My collection so far which for now covers every venue i fish,

The Maggot float- 1.5 mm tip carbon stem (may change to side eyes on the smaller ones, from .15g to .6g)

The pellet 1.7mm solid tip glass stem

The Carp .3g to .75c using 2mm tips and glass stem and Silva body
247B111D-9D2B-4FAD-A456-9FCD618F04E9.jpeg
The Slappa and little Slappa 3x8 and 3x10 with 15mm 2.5mm tips ( worked well yesterday catching 15 f1’s on 4 and 6 mm soft pellets) just slapping away

The Mugga .6g but tiny needs a bit more of a workout but happy with it so far

B95EAEC3-9D49-4711-AC42-0FE27F9DACD0.jpeg And not forgetting my little diamond and diamonds .4g to 1g 1.7 tips glass stems
35E9DF4D-D560-4D7D-A7F9-B68A064B4FAE.jpeg
And then a couple more patterns not photo’d my .4g and .5g margin muddy’s short diamond types with 2.5mm tips

problem is I’ve made enough now to last me a couple of seasons, what am I going to do now😳
