Odds and ends shot tubes..

I had a few bits of bamboo left from Landing net poles , that were a bit too large for the poles, but too narrow for anything else, and was loath to throw them away,coupled with a bagfull of wine corks, which were just gathering dust...... so after a bit of work ended up with these..

I am thinking now that it may work if I turn some hardwood /cork "stoppers " for them , in preference to plain cork, something to do in the days ahead before the season starts.

Thank you Terry :Hat:

I have made a few more since then, some with turned wooden caps with cork inserts, they are in my tackle boxes filled with bits and bobs .

The longer tubes are "supposed" to be Bernard Venables and Richard Walker, my apologies to both for the (un) liknesses .

OMR kindly gifted me one of these beautiful shot tubes when I went to pick up my third and final (unless he decides to make another size) landing net from him. I picked the tench version but now feel the need for more, so it's off to send OMR a PM.

Thanks
