Do you love big bluegill?
I JUST MADE THESE A I AM EXCITED TO FIELD TEST THEM. THEY ARE REAL EASY TO MAKE AND WOULD BE A GOOD'CHEAP; WINTER TIME, FISHING ORIENTED, PROJECT FOR KIDS OR ANYBODY. I'LL PROBABLLY NEVER BUY STORE BOUGHT FLOATS AGAIN.
pretty darn neat. You are right about stealing........... Not sure how you can protect the idea except the possibility of a patten. Anyway, make a bunch and market them right here, if it's allowed.
The corncob float is about as old as dirt, as far as I know. Ive seen them in old angling books and on the internet, too.
Yours look pretty nice, they could double as wagglers after a fashion, too. Do not forget to waterproofing them well with some urethane or shellac, though. The cob will absorb water, unlike corks or styrofoam.
