Too much time on my hands...

Post by Crucian » Sat Aug 12, 2017 1:03 pm

Looking through Paul Cook's lovely book, 'Lost in a quiet world' I came across a little drawing of a lost float, hanging in a tree. 'That would look nice on a float tube' I thought . I contacted Mr cook and he kindly allowed me to copy it, thank you Sir. If you haven't read the book, I recommend it to you.

Good fun,this leather work...I can't go fishing at the moment, so it passes the time nicely.

That's fabulous - in fact it's so nice I think I'd worry about taking it to the bankside!

Seriously Paul - you have quite a talent there.

Cheers

Having lost a fair few floats in my time that image from Paul's book has rather become my motif. I've even got a poor version of it as a 'suncatcher' on the toilet window.......
