    Can't quite believe it.

    To be quit honest with you Bob I never thought I would write Airflo floaters and straight in the same sentence, so therefore it could be considered a complimentry post. Not that they deserve it.

    Can't quite believe it.

    Airflo gave Airflo a bad name.

    Can't quite believe it.

    Talking to a bloke at the fishing yesterday, I asked him what line he was using. Airflo 40+ floating line he said. First time in 50 years fishing I've seen an Airflo floating line lie straight as a die. Wonders will never cease me.
