Rats!


I was going to give Paul one of my poor home-made floats, thinking that his are so good I bet nobody ever gives the feller a float.


Not sure I'll do that now :oops:


Some of the nicest floats you've ever made there, Andrew.

Nobby , would love one of your floats . I have always maintained no matter how floats are made or finished , it is floatmaking afterall and anyones skills no matter at what level they may be or think that they are regardless , I will always have the respect that someone has taken the time to have a go and make some . From what I have seen Nobby , your floats look pretty damn good . Will PM you for our meet up .

Thanks Paul

And from the second parcel these three appeared along with another beaming face. Again they will be treasured for life, thank you Andrew. I know just the place where these will be used in the warmer months, and the species that will pull them under, carps.

Again my pictures just don't do them justice.
