    Hey community,

    So A very simple request. Been salmon fishing, and my favorite bobber is no longer unusable! :( And no one has em for sale anymore. So i desperately need someone who can make boobers. I will pay for whatever the cost. And i do have my old one that you can use as a template. And pretty much get the idea of how it goes.

    Thanks
    Koda

    Show a picture of what you need made up.
    I'm slightly confused on the type of bobber you need.

    Would be easy to tune some on a lathe if
    wood or balsa wood will satisfy you
    Outline what you want on paper
    And send to

    There were some about the dimensions you had at bimart but these used a bobber stop instead of a straw. Good luck on your search

    Ben,

    Is there someone you know. Or you yourself can make? Please let me know. And also cant really give outline on paper, becuase it has a unique design. But i could send the whole bobber there. That way gives much better of how the bobber once was while it was new.

    Please let me know :) thanks everyone happy holidays

    Oh boy. Once you get some boobers made up I will gladly test them out for you. I heard that boobers and motorboating go together perfectly ;)

    Are they weighted? Are you willing to pay for them if I make them?

    Doogbage,

    No they are no weighted. They are just a regular slip styrofoam bobber, and yes absolutely willing to pay if you make them.
