Do you love big bluegill?
Read this group posts and it got me interested in making some personal floats and a few to give to a friend who I tie flies for.
Started out with 1/2x1/2" balsa
Made eyes out of stainless wire, thread wrapped the top and bottom of the center posts, Coated the floats with super glue to seal, then applied three coats of clear enamel to complete, Sanded in between coats.
Nice work John!
So far, I have only gotten balsa from Hobby Lobby, but I am looking for a better supplier with a larger selection of sizes.
They make a sanding sealer for filling/sealing raw wood-much cheaper than using super glue.
