The Flee & Float has been designed to share with others my Passion's in Fishing.
Fly fishing using Split Cane & Carbon fly rods in pursuit of wild river Trout & Grayling, using self tied flies. Trotting for Grayling using Centrepin Reels and Cane trotting rods.
Hand making Furled leaders for Fly fishing and making floats for trotting for Grayling.

Getting ready for the Ladies
Around this time of year a few lads always get in touch with me for their trotting floats for the Grayling. I am continuously grateful they always ask me each year to make their floats and also for thinking ahead, that way I get to enjoy my favourite time of the fishing year, the Grayling season instead of making up floats for others to enjoy it.
First out the blocks was a friend from Derbyshire who asked for 3 sets of floats.
One set done in deep oak.
one set in mahogany
And the final set in antique pine.
One final coat of lacquer before they will be ready for the off.
