EXTRA LONG PEAR

The extra long pear float was one of the first type of pole floats that I was introduced too, the World championships in Northern Ireland on the Newry canal 1982.
Being completely new to pole fishing at the time, we were getting well and truly battered by the continental teams in the practice sessions. The canal was over 15ft deep in places, and getting to grips was difficult to say the least, the fish responded to bloodworm on the drop.
I came about with this float when discovering how the other teams were faring and in particular the Dutch team. Lifting and settling the float in a five foot lift of the pole. Long droppers and as the float would settle then the fish would respond this float was ideal for that method, and history tells us the team of Holland won the event using this type of float.

This design of float does very well in deep water, canals, docks, lakes, lochs etc.. Venues that don't pull hard. Lifting the float and letting the body do the work of a slow drop, finds this shape to be excellent.

Nylon tips, and a wire base stem, makes up the rest of the float. (See float diagram) The long tapering body allows heavy droppers reducing to small droppers on the hook length for then the nylon bristle. Lift bites are produced when the timing of the float appears not to settle in a given   time.
  The eye of the float is situated on the tapered body; this allows a small lift of the float if required, to produce a smaller presentation or movement of the float.
