Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish

Not strictly made by me, the brass spreader made by Hermit as well as the ash hope, all I needed to do was to sand it I then stained it and added the net, all ready to go now

A few more bits and pieces...

Image

Apart from a few floats made by Paul Cook in his very early days (I bought them after seeing a review in IYCF) I made all the rest. Colour scheme inspired by Paul, too.

Image

Lower section of the box

Image

My final shot at shot tubs...

Image

I have to remember to hold them the right way up when opening them...vertical and shot numbered end on top!

Image

A few fancy Pike bungs...

Image

A home made float box...

For some more home made floats.
