ALL BALSA POLE FLOAT

The all balsa pole float is gaining in popularity, and there are a few British float manufactures now making this handy little float including My own Company Gold Medal Floats.

This float can be used on drifting canals, drains, and slow moving rivers and even on commercial carp pools; this robust float has the balsa shaped aerodynamically for holding or trotting in the swim or slopw moving drift.

The Balsa tip allows more buoyancy; and better sight for long pole fishing, some floats come with quick-change float adaptors, so the use of an eye is made redundant.

With a shoulder on the float shotting can be made up of a reducing weight, or bulk, and can be held up in a flow.

The buoyancy of the tip allows a method of dragging the bottom of the canal, slowing the bait up in a drift. Caster fishing is an extremely good bet with this float.   Setting the float twelve inches over depth, and with a couple of shots laying on, the float will slow up in a tow, from time to time the float may drag under, getting the correct balance, will help slow up the presentation.

Another little tip with this methods is when the flow starts to pull on the canal or drain lay the float down stream of the shot, and when the flow catches the float the bait will move suddenly, after laying on the bottom for a few seconds. This sudden movement will attract a fish almost straight away, the fish thinks the bait is getting away and so it will respond to it.

Using style leads weights are very useful after pinching them lightly on the line with a style pinch tool; they can be slid up or down the line to change the shotting pattern. Bunching them together to make a bulk for getting the bait down faster and keeping it on the bottom, or splitting them up to create a slow drop bait presentation.

Split shots work equally as well, as long as they are used in small sizes. Squeeze them lightly on the hook for sliding, if split shot doesn't slide on the line then squeeze the split on the shot in the opposite direction that you put them on. This will allow them to move.
