    thank you for explaining what the hell these things are, not like some other channel that didn’t explain nothing

    It’s surprising that he collects those ugly plastic and wood floats as well. The glass orbs are so cool, the others so comparatively trashy. Loved the music, too.

  8. Carrival on February 15, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    Fascinating!! Thank you!!

    i just watched a guy who collects up in alaska, as he landed they were all over the beach. which area is best on average ,.or does it just depend on the weather

    Can someone please tell me how the glass fishing floats are used?
    EDIT: Never mind, I’ll google it.

  19. Denise Terry on February 15, 2020 at 1:38 pm

    Can you identify a glass float for me with the stamp on it? Thank you

  20. Craig Dutton on February 15, 2020 at 1:38 pm

    Theirs nothing like finding a real gem 💎 like 100 yr plus glass 🥰

  21. Ron Hicke on February 15, 2020 at 1:39 pm

    We found one on the Oregon Coast that has water in it, many years ago. The water is still in it. How did the water there? Any ideas? Betty from Canada

    Hi I think I have a glass float can I send you a pic?

  23. Christopher Moonlight on February 15, 2020 at 1:44 pm

    Very cool. I was once on the lookout for fishing floats for a movie that needed them as props. We soon learned that they fetch a lot more money than we had in the budget. They’re really cool.

  24. LBluffBob on February 15, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    I have viewed your video because just today I found a large glass float.  I know little about them.  This one is about 10" in diameter and appears to be clear glass.  However, it is covered with calcification, barnacles, a little sea weed, etc.  My question is how does one clean one of these so it can be inspected.  I don’t want to damage or scratch the glass.  You can reply to my post or email me at bobbroten@gmail.com  Anything or comments you can provide will be greatly appreciated.  I found it along the central florida east coast.

    Novelity collectors item I guess? Could be used for Christmas ornaments I’m thinking? Fun to look for but kind of like collectors beany babies as far as I can see.

  26. Norma Reyes on February 15, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    I’m from Saipan next to Japan and very rare that people collect here but there are collectors here.

  28. xman870096 on February 15, 2020 at 1:53 pm

    Very Cool, fantastic collection!!

    I just inherited my grandparents large glass fishing float. It still has the net on it and it’s been in my family for over 40 plus years. It has some paint on the ball so how do I clean this without ruining the net that is very fragile now from being outside in the garden this whole time?

  30. country boy on February 15, 2020 at 1:55 pm

    the 2011 japan tsunami definitely washed more out to sea.

  31. Diane Gederian on February 15, 2020 at 1:56 pm

    Hello I have 3 floats that my Dad found on a Hawaiian beach. He was stationed there during WW11
