 These  are popular all purpose trotting floats.  One of the reasons for their popularity is that provided you have a range of sizes you can use them to good effect on just about any water. These are not specialist floats like sticks.  A set of these will help you catch anywhere the water is moving.  The reason for the Avon's suitability for almost every trotting situation lies in its design. It has the classic features of a trotting float - buoyancy high up, sturdiness with streamlining and stability.  Naturally it performs best in ideal conditions - an upstream wind and moderate, even flow. It is attached top and bottom and fished in the traditional trotting style. The larger floats with a more streamlined body and higher shot carrying capacity can be fished well out in quite deep, fast flowing water. The smaller ones work best close in, in shallower gliding swims.  (Text taken from "Float fishing with Ivan Marks")

Avons and others - Bob Harbin - 18/11/2018
I bought a set of Avons together with a few Stillwater flosts from Ian. They arrived very carefully packed and are superb. I've purchased a few other floats from different suppliers but theses are a cut above. The only problem is that they are addictive and you want more - Beware! Bob
