    How to make a fishing float - balsa waggler
    In the past this is basically the same way that I used to make my own floats, with added balsa bodies on some to make bodied wagglers, and with short lengths of copper doweling at the bottom of some to make semi-loaded 'Onion Wagglers' etc.

    Mine certainly weren't masterpieces like PurplePeanut's or Andrew Fields but they all worked fine

    I don't do it any more but I had many hours of fun when I was younger during the old closed season.

    To thin to be a newel post so it must be a spindle. Mind you on second thoughts it is a newel post because of the square bottom.

    Grean Hart hardwood stem for a stick or avon.

    The block at the base needs cutting off and the spigot at the top needs further shaping.
