Thread: Free Balsa

    Default Free Balsa

    I have about 1.5 cubic meters (yes, cubic meters) of off-cut balsa left over from the construction of my yacht. Not that it will matter much to the fish, but this is top premium balsa used in the aerospace industry. The original balsa was in die cut sheet form measuring 1200 x 600 mm - the balsa is in 19 and 25 mm thickness. There is enough balsa in the pic directly below for at least 50 poppers.

    If anybody is interested, I'm willing to give you enough balsa for at least 200 poppers. Any takers?

    Hi Devlin

    These are all left overs from my yacht and besides making poppers from this, I have no further use for it. Also pointless to keep all this stuff for myself as it will take me a couple of life times to work through all of this.

    Since you are distributing the fly swap - maybe you will volunteer to distribute the balsa as my time is at a premium.

    That's awesome Wiets, thanks for the generous offer! I still have some bits and pieces left over from a bygone era, but I'll know where to go knocking if ever I need....not so Devlin?
