FRENCH POLE FLOAT ( PEAR SHAPE)

This pear shape float is a drop pear and this one illustrated was developed by the float company WaterQueen First shown to me when fishing on the river Seine, Chalon Ser Mar, France.
Yet this float is fished with a difference, shotted with a bulk and a string of shots below, but this float is under shotted, in other words. Shotted very buoyant showing a large part of the float.
The tip of the pole is then sunk below the surface and then held back against the flow, this allows the boat to settle as normal, except the pole pulls the float down to the cane tip part of the float, the pace and the flow of the float down stream is then dictated by the angler.

The advantage of this method is, when the angler gets a bite it will be a positive one, and not a false bite as the over shotted basic river pear shape as described in a previous article.
This method helped France to win the World Championships in Yugoslavia on the river Drava 1990. Beating England and Italy respectively.

Although the float is very similar to the drop pear shape this smaller squatter shape makes the method work a lot better. I have used this method with good results; it can only be used in deep water, where the pole over the top of the fish and under the water cannot spook them.
Venues like the Gloucester canal or parts of the Severn and Avon, and Bristol Avon can all benefit with this method, venues abroad lend this method well, Holland on the deep canals, Ireland and the big rivers and lochs etc...

Plumbing must be spot on with this method, the length of line on the bottom must not exceed more than a few inches or centimeters, if it does then the float will be pulled under more than it should be.
When plumbing fast flowing deep water, you must allow for the pressure of the current, as the flow can give a false depth try plumbing with a heavy weight and do it several times, up and down the swim, creating a mental picture of the bottom.
