FISHING GEAR.


In this section you will find items that are for use in modelling fishing boats, be they modern trawlers or fishing boats from yesteryear,  this is a facinating field of marine modelling as fishing boats alter virtually by community. There have been hundreds of different fishing vessels in the UK alone


CABLE AND ROPE FOR TRAWLERS.
Here we have a series of cables and ropes that can be very usefull when making trawlers and fishing boats either modern boats or traditional boats.



Example of our yellow and black water proof nylon cable. Please note that this material is fairly "stiff" as it has been treated to make it waterproof and rot proof.



Example of our 0.5mm braided day glow rope - very popular.



Example of our very popular 3.0mm dia braided orange cable.
This material is very hard to find and makes great mooring ropes.



A very unusaul item. Braided nylon tube! - very polpular has lots
of uses on workboats.




GREEN GLASS FISHING FLOATS.

Green glass fishing floats for use with nets etc. I stock two sizes of these floats, 12.0mm and 6.0mm. Both types are priced at only £1.00 per pack, there are 5 units in the 12.0mm packs and 10 units in the 6.0mm packs.






WOOD DAN BOAY FLOATS.

Here I have some superb wood dan bouy floats. They are hollow hence they can take a wood or metal rod quite easily, they come ready painted in orange paint and ate supplied in packs of four at only £1.00 per pack.






PLASTIC "ICE" FOR FISHING OPERATIONS.
Plastic "ice" for use in fish boxes, on deck or in fish rooms. This is a special plastic material that has been broken up and crushed and simulates ice very well. Sold per pack at only £0.75 per pack. I am getting low on this material once it has gone it has gone as they say.

 


SCALLOP BELLIES.

I no longer make these items but have left the pictures to aid other modellers who wish to make these very time consuming items for there model.




Below is an example of the scallop bellies in a scallop trawl, this has kindly been sent to me by Mr John Irvine from Shetland who has used my scallop bellies in his model, I think that you will agree this is a stunning piece of work. Thank you Mr Irvine.



A superb piece of model making by Mr Irvine.
