In truth my entire love of nature might have started with all those tea cards.....I lived in smoggy South London until I was 9.


The Elfin floats were rather basic in appearance actually:

I think the sticker was used to hide one of the printed colour options....maybe.......

It's nice to hear about other people's life and history and how it can be influenced by things like that. Mine was the the Observer books (Birds and Birds eggs).
I shall keep an eye out for floats at The Romsey Vintage Tackle Fair. I'm after a Grayling/Perch bob too.

I shall have a table at Romsey in October, but sadly no Elfin floats..there might be one or two about though. Small bobbers I'm sure you will find. I'll see if I can find a catalogue entry for you green and white float...I know I have some somewhere.......
