    Default In the winter when I'm not catching ...

    I quit ice fishing long ago, so in my spare time in the hard water months I make stuff from wood related to my panfish fishing obsession.
    I made this tackle box from mahogany and box joints and I also turn my own floats from balsa for gill fishing at Worster lake.
    I just thought I'd share some pix.

    I was just thinking today how cool it would be to have some custom/member made floats. Then another hooiser of all people posts it. Super cool. Have you ever thought about selling any?

    For slip floats I whip a small gold modified safety pin on the bottom of the stem. The stem is made from a solid hardwood dowel. Then standard bead and knots work.
    For fixed floats, I use silicon tubing to attach the line to the float. This is similar to thill floats. On the top part of the stem I use an O-ring purchased from McMaster car

    Nah, I've never considered selling any. I actually lose many in the trees so sometimes I run out or I give away many to fishing buddies.
