Float and fly kit

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember what company put this kit out or what it was called? I believe they were around in the 80s. this one was purchased at an area K-Mart. It was for throwing light wt. dry flies with spin gear. The clear bubble float added the wt. so the fly could be cast.

No, but those bobbers were called “Adjust-a-Bubble” and were made byRainbow Plastics. If that is what you are after.

Thanks Mark. I was going through my fishing gear and found it. The info about the maker had been removed. I was just wondering if anyone remembers the product and who made it. I'll look up Rainbow products. I wasn't a fly caster at the time I bought the product, oh so many years ago.

Rainbow plastics makes a kit called the Fly-N-Bubble. It comes with a bubble and your choice of 5 flies. This looks to be the same product. I may have bought 2 kits and combined them. Thanks again Mark.

I've several of those floats of three sizes. The neat thing about those floats is the capability to adjust their buoyancy by allowing water into them, then seal 'em up. (My Dad called them "water bubbles").
