Another day another package. At just after 10am the postman left a small Jiffy bag containing some more Percy Wadham’s celluloid floats. Simple in construction and a timeless icon of the sixties, these celluloid floats may grace the line of the traditional fisherman matched to a Speedia reel on a B James Avon Perfection or Chapman 500 sporting a Ambidex reel, images I remember from childhood.

Alfred Barnes continued to make Wadham floats after the death of Percy Wadham. See the link below to part of the Barnes legacy of manufacturing tackle and fishing related items.
