EXTRA WIDE BASE FLOAT

This extra wide base pole float is used for stabilizing the presentation in the water, fished with a bulk down and light droppers, on small canals and Stillwater.

Other factors that determines a float stability in the water, is the base stem materials. Wire stem can add weight to a float and will half cock a small float, so there is less shot down.

A warning about wire stems is that they can easily be bent when moving the float up or down the line, always pull the silicone float rubbers down before attempting to slide the float on the line. Twisting the line aroused the wire helps the float not to slip.

Carbon is a material that float makers have now found to be useful, it is strong, less likely to bend and is relatively light. It adds less weight to a float and is used on smaller type canals and Stillwater.   Cane stems are very common and are used with floats to add extra weight capacity, used for slow sinking presentation, and is very robust.

Plastic stems have neutral buoyancy and can be found on larger pole floats, fine-fiber glass is very popular with a medium size float, helps to cock larger floats.

I like to use the wide base pole float when their is a chop on the water, I find it stops the float from bobbing about, hence creating a better presentation.

Used with a wire bristle the float is very stable and this float can be used when fishing to hand, either with a pole or a whip. For further out fishing, I will use a cane or nylon bristle Most continental match anglers make up their pole floats at home, put them on winder's use them once, and then destroy them. We British anglers tend to use the same rigs over and over again.

I believe that perhaps we should be thinking more on the same wavelength as the continental anglers, after all they are the ones that discovered pole fishing.
