Ooooooow! :Thumb: Thanks Nobby. I have just looked and cannot find Harcock ...a bit up market for Edwards; were they not trading with the bottom end of the retail, outlets within toy shops and cycle dealers. Correct me if I am wrong..... I was six at the time of the published price list ! Tony

Ah, must be a different year then, my apologies...my memory isn't what it once was. I did read that they started out by selling tackle 'out the back of a van' as they visited tackle shops. I did find that they ended up in Brixton after leaving Wallington and Carshalton, and later traded as Black Seal.

Looks like it was the 1958 one that was the Harcork 'proof'

Fine print, I nearly missed it:

Jeff Dell Mura put a £50m reward on his book Hooked on Floats for whoever identified the maker of Harcork floats but I didn't have the nerve to claim it as I had only borrowed his book, not purchased one. Nevertheless we've been pals ever since and he has a new book out soon on cast holders.
