'And them bells were ringing out for Christmas day!'

I would like to point out that this is not the commercialisation of Christmas, JC loved to fish and spent some glorious times with his mates down Galilee way shooting the breeze and catching a dozen fish or so. And so we think it's only fitting that our fish should be able to get to celebrate Christmas as well.

These bells measure approx 6" width by 5" depth and a height of 3.5" holes being 1" diameter and 1.5" diameter.

Made from a durable rugged plastic they are easy to clean - aiding in the reduction of bird diseases.
