Welcome to Handmade Fishing Floats by Ian Lewis


I am one of only a few full time professional float makers left in England.  I make fine, hand crafted fishing floats using the finest natural materials for the discerning angler. I offer a link to the way things were not too long ago, when the pace of life was just that little bit slower and people were more in touch with the tools they used.

I have over 100 different styles / sizes of fishing floats available on this website so please enjoy your time looking around.  If you have any questions or would like a float that you can not find here, please feel free to contact me for a chat about what you are looking for and I will be glad to help.

Natural materials look and feel beautiful but more than that - most are far more durable than modern materials and should they break or get lost, are more biodegradable. All my materials are responsibly and ethically sourced, and every float is handmade by myself.

Of course this does mean that my floats are a little more expensive than modern floats, but I believe once you have used them you will agree that the extra cost is more than outweighed by the pleasure you will get from using floats handcrafted for  beauty and strength. (Please see the TESTIMONIALS page to see what other anglers think)

I have tried to divide up my website to make it easy to navigate. All floats have been put into various categories as you will see on the left - if you are a river fisherman or lake the best choices should be easy to find.  If you are after a particular cocking weight the floats are all in their place.  Prefer cork to balsa?  Looking for a quill float?  Or you can just browse "All Patterns" to see them all!

Delivery time - I try to post orders out within 7 Days, however, at busy times this might be slightly longer.  I apologise for any inconvenience and if your order is for a special occasion such as a birthday with a deadline, please contact me so we can discuss options.

Postage charges:  There is nothing more annoying than having to fill out order forms to find out postage rates so here are mine.

Buying just floats - UK postage is FREE if you spend over £15   If under £15 you will be charged £1.50.
Overseas (all non UK addresses) will be charged £5.50 on all purchases.  Items will be sent international airmail.
PLEASE NOTE - Oak boxes will be charged at £4.40 for recorded delivery.

Happy browsing and if you have any questions please feel free to either message me or Phone me (details on the contact page)


Newsletter - I send out several newsletters each year which showcase new designs and feature customer reviews of different floats.  They always come with a 10% discount code for you to use on all purchases on my website (excluding the oak boxes).  If you would like to review a float design for me please like my Face-book page and contact me with the style of fishing you do so I can discuss various patterns needing a review with you.
