THE DIPPER OR DIBBER FLOAT

The river dipper is a flat top peacock, designed to trot the swim, off bottom or dragging lightly with a good visible flat tip. I first saw this float working only a couple of years ago, by my favourite and in my opinion the best angler England has ever produced Big Kevin Ashurst of Leigh.

He used this float with such skill at the John Smith August bank holiday weekend angling extravaganza, on the Warwickshire Avon, Evesham. Drawn next to me in the team event he gave me a good lesson in fine tackle pole fishing.

Catching those big roach on size 26 hooks and 6oz bottoms he doubled my weight catching over 3lb on a very hard day. Subsequently he went on and picked up a few more team places from very hard swims, in the competition that weekend.

Showing me the float and watching it work was an eye opener for me, always learning, and I certainly did on this occasion. With the float dotted down in the water, the depth of the float was almost twice the natural depth, for example the swim was 6ft deep   and he fished this float at twelve foot in depth.

With very light shotting a few number tens down and a couple of number twelve’s a foot apart, the hook length, dragging along the bottom. This was producing a bait presentation that was so natural the fish didn’t 't have a chance.

I have fished this method many times since, and have bagged up, no matter what the depth of the swim is, the depth of the float has to be twice that. The float is a yellow colour and dotted right down on the water, when you get a bite the float simply vanishes.

Feeding is very impotent using this method, just a few offerings every two or three minutes down, any more and the fish come up in the water and you loose the affect.
