Jim spoke with great enthusiasm about his float collection. We are lucky to have this video footage and thanks goes to the Lincoln County Historical Society. This video introduces the history of glass fishing floats, information on collecting, and a beautiful look at some of Jim's most prized floats. 

 

The collection of floats which he donated to the Maritime Center roused great interest and the collection is still displayed to this day.
