Traditional Fishing Floats

Welcome to Traditional Fishing Floats, where you can buy hand crafted fishing floats made by Paul Duffield, author of Make Your Own Traditional Fishing Tackle.

Each float is hand made in the U.K. using natural materials and  sealed with several coats of quality waterproof lacquer so they will last for many seasons of fishing.

All floats can be custom made to your specifications, including colour, both of the body and the tip, the style and colour of thread and the length of the float. I may also be able to make replicas of existing floats if you have a favourite float that has worn out or broken, or you want floats in different sizes to complete a set.

You can see examples and prices for the styles of float available by clicking the images below, or by choosing from the menu above.

To order floats, please complete the form on the Contact/Order page. Orders of five floats or more are sent post free to any address in the U.K. For orders of less than five floats there is a single postage charge of £1.25. For international orders there is a flat postage charge of £5 for any quantity.

Floats are made to order, but I sometimes have floats available for immediate purchase that can be seen on the Available Now page and in auction on eBay that can be seen on the Ebay Auctions page.
