BRISTLE TOP STICK FLOAT
top stick float is a float that's been developed from a pole float, it
is a basic stick boat but with a difference, it has a nylon bristle in
the top. The advantage of this bristle is the float can be
shotted well down in the water, showing the shyest of bites.
The development of this float came about with the very shy bites from
those wearily old roach, on the Warwickshire Avon, in the Midlands, as
with a normal stick float the presentation must be spot on, these roach
would swim with the bait, sucking out the maggots, and without a bite
This float would with the slightest movement show a bite, slightly over
shotting and using pole bristle grease to help keep the bristle just
above water, this float became perhaps the most sensitive of all stick
float fishing Roach can on some venues, be very clever to catch,
especially if they are fished for often.
stick method is very good for roach fishing, and this bristle top can
be devastating, for quality roach. Small roach are much
easier to catch than their parents, yet offering a very light and
sensitive approach can result in better quality fish.
The secret is to create a natural bait presentations and by trotting
through unheeded with this light stick float method, making sure that
their is no unnatural movement of the float then good quality roach
will follow. I have a range of these sticks,
that I can change and use instantly converting a normal stick float and
because of the rubbers, in to a sensitive bristle stick float.
When I have missed bites, or little dimples around the float, can tell
me when to change and what a difference it can sometimes make.
