Some Andy B floats and others.....

Post by Badger1 » Tue Feb 03, 2015 9:18 am

Hello all,

I'm not personally interested in all these flashy floats available nowadays....quite happy with a cheap and nasty plastic chubber float myself. But for you Float Fairies some Andy Batchelor floats available in this auction Ebay number - 331466854100.

May interest some of you.

Cheerio.

I was looking closely at those before I read the text.



Looks familiar, I thought......scratching my head....then I read the text. Pretty sure only one of them is mine though.


Andy makes some lovely traditional tackle and his prices are better then just about anybody else that I am aware of.

Andy's floats are great! But I don't care for the ones that are painted with scenes on, like old oil paintings!

That was the idea of them...I think the maker is, or was, a member here and folk were asking him to do miniatures of favourite swims and suchlike.

In that case they're very good for what they are, small works of art and commissioned to boot.

Beautiful floats on his web page and if I could afford them I would love them. I would never use them though in case I lost them (almost certain with my casting) :(
