Traditional fishing floats individually hand made in the U.K. by Paul Duffield. Choose from proven classic designs or have a float made to your own specifications.

Each float is handmade in the U.K. using natural materials and  sealed with several coats of quality waterproof lacquer so they will last for many seasons of fishing. Please choose from the menu at the top of each page to view the styles of float available.

Floats are made to order and are usually ready within three weeks of receiving your order, but at busy times can take a little longer, so please allow up to four weeks for delivery.


I am not taking new orders for custom floats at the current time as I am in the process of moving premises.Outstanding float orders are being worked on and all orders should be fulfilled shortly.

Please visit the contact page if you would like to contact me for an update on an existing order.

You can order floats from my standard ranges by selecting a category from the menu at the top and right hand side of each page. You can also contact me using information on the contact page if you prefer to order by email or have special requirements.

I use PayPal as a payment processor. When you add a float to your cart by clicking an ‘Add to Cart’ button, a summary of your shopping cart, displayed on the right near the top of each page, or below the main page content on mobile phones and some tablets, will be updated to show the number of  items currently in your cart and the total cost of your order excluding postage.

You can open a shopping cart page by clicking the ‘View Cart’ menu item.

When you are ready to complete your order, view your shopping cart and click the ‘Check out with PayPal’ button to be taken to PayPal to complete your purchase.

If you would prefer to pay by cheque or bank transfer, please contact me with your requirements using information on the contact page .


I list some of the floats I make on eBay. If you would prefer not to wait for floats to be custom made, these floats are ready now for immediate purchase.

A selection of the floats I currently have listed on eBay is shown below. To see all of the floats currently available you can visit my eBay shop.


All floats are handmade in the UK and can be customised to your specifications. I can also make floats to your personal specifications and it may also be possible to make replicas of existing floats if you have a favourite float that has worn out or broken, or you want floats in different sizes to complete a set.

If you have a design for a float that you cannot find commercially, want a float made in  your team colours, or you want a special float made for a birthday or wedding gift, I can probably help, so please get in touch using information on the contact page .

Custom floats are not expensive and I will usually be able to make your float for little more than the price of my standard designs. More information about the customisations available and examples of custom floats I have made for customers can be found on the Custom Floats page.
