BLOODWORM POLE FLOAT
tapered balsas with a wire bristle and cane bottom float, is a perfect
Stillwater pole float, with the eye on the body at two thirds from the
base. Given to me by Pillipe Perriot the French manager, for
totally bloodworm fishing he said. I first used this float in 1986 for
lifting a bloodworm off the bottom of the canal bed.
As a very
sensitive float used in conjunction with pole float grease, this float
worked exceptionally well when fishing bloodworm just off or on the
bottom. By pulling the float slightly the float will move
upwards in the water, lifting the bloodworm off the bottom, just enough
for the bait to attract a fish.
long wire bristle, a bite will show all the stages of development, i.e.
the float will rise before going away, lifting up into the fish is
always the best movement of striking. This allows the hook to lift into
the top part of the mouth, hitting more fish is the end result.
French anglers prefer to use a
butterfly knot for their top pole stomp connection, this makes the pole
tip very light, and they can feel the connection to the fish making it
