Hand Made Floats

March 2nd, 2011 Comments off

Some times there is a website that just makes you stop in your tracks and say wow, tonight I had one of those moments… get on over to Handmade Floats, and indulge yourself in a visual feast. Whether you float fish or not you can not help but be amazed by the beauty of the floats that Andrew Field makes on his blog.  What ever you fish for there is a float there to suit your style, however I feel that there is but one problem with these floats… if I buy some I will never sully them by dipping in water. They are too beautiful and too perfect.

I will stop this post here, click the link and admire not only the quality of the floats but also the photography. It is really good to see someone who can take a basic item and make it into an object of lust 🙂 now to find a price list

Photography is vital in carp fishing ( and to specimen hunting in general) matchmen generally only take a picture if they win, specimen hunters take far far more. with this in mind I though I would point out some of the places on the net that I use to help me with my photography both for fishing and for holiday photos. 1st up we have  TutsPlus.com and their rather spectacular 100 Photography Tutorials
