THE FLUTED FLOAT


Shaped with four fluted wings that are designed to catch the current of the river and travel the stream naturally, this float is so adaptable in running water it can be held against the current to slow up the presentation of the bait.

As a youngster fishing my local river Taff in Cardiff this was undoubtedly the best type of float to combat the surge of this fast flowing river. So popular that the angling press wrote very good reports regarding this float and even gave them away as a promotion.  

The pronounced balsa tip was very visible and a perfect tool for long distance trotting.  Winning the Junior Welsh National using this float was the pinnacle for me in my teenage years. I hold this float in great esteem and carry an old version in my tackle box. Now I am happy to prelaunch this great float as a promotional offer through my company Gold Medal Floats co uk.

Casting the fluted float is also very easy, either a side cast, under arm or overhead, the bulk weight carries the float to your chosen destination. With your finger on the reel adjust to check it when entering the water. Sizes of float vary, depending on the venue, from 4bb up to 12bb bulking the main shot about 20" from the hook and using either 1bb or 2bb droppers, further the cast less dropper shots, as a rule of thumb. Making sure that you squeeze the bulk shots onto the line with the split facing the same way, this will help in less twist on the line, sometimes a small swivel can be introduced just below the bulk and some anglers use an Olivetti instead of a bulk but in my opinion a bulk shot is more pliable.

A vast range of running water venues lends this float adaptability, fasts shallow, turbulent rivers best and the float is attached by two rubbers one at the tip and one just above the eyed bottom ring which helps to stabilize the float on the line from slipping.
