"The aim of this book is to celebrate the fishing float and explore much of who made what, where, when and why. We will look into what shaped 100 years of angling's most humble artifact and meet with some of the best known, most outstanding and most intriguing examples. If you are enchanted by old fishing tackle; if you appreciate nostalgia; if you ever caught a fish using a float; if you are a collector, an investor, a light browser or a deep reader - or simply a curious float fan, then this book is most definitely one for you." A superb and handsomely produced book on floats and float collecting, their history and potential future. A mine of good information on floats made by well known companies as well as private individuals and those of unknown origin. A great book.
