MB Floats was first founded as a mail order, Brochure based supplier of Hand turned Specials way back in 1993.
MB Canal Specials website, was also one of the front runners in the early days of online ordering 1998 and is still online today as an archive. www.mbcanalspecials.co.uk mainly for the hardcore canal match anglers. All balsa patterns there were 100% hand turned by myself. With many now available in my online store.
With over 20 years of float making, my catalogue is absolutely massive and needs reducing as I shell now be mainly making to order and through MB Floats Facebook I shell give notice when stock is added to store. The HT range will be considerable reduced and I shell be writing both here and on social media on how the HT patterns are assembled with lists of resources for those that fancy a go at making/assembling fishing floats.
