Thats a lovely gesture Micky.

BC, you will not find any better πŸ‘.

What a way to start float collection !
Your problem now will be finding some correspondingly fine float to increase the numbers .

Not a river I'm familiar with. A useful float on many rivers is the Drennan wire-stem Avon, available in 3BB, %bb and 7BB sizes.

Hopefully you got my address Micky. Curious to know where you fish as I'm also in Sussex?
