THE FUNNY FLOAT

The funny float is a unique float unlike any other in the tackle box; it is used in conjunction with a whip.

I first came across this float a few years ago, whilst on the road as a fishing tackle representative. Calling into a local tackle shop in Oxford, the owner showed me a float that said works well with bloodworm.

Used in conjunction with a whip or pole to hand, this float works non stop in the swim, it allows a sink and drop of the bait, in the swim without the pole going over the heads, or moving out of position.

At the time a local team called pyrotech were taking the Oxford canal by storm, winning most team events using this float, these days I don't hear too much about this method float, but still I am convinced this method will work on most canals and still waters.

The float is called a funny float, because of the way it acts in the water; it is shaped with a long working antenna and bristle, sat on top of a pear shape body.

The float eye is situated on the top of the body, the float is set in the water up to the nylon bristle, and by pulling the line the float pops up to the surface, this brings the bait off the bottom like a natural bloodworm jumping action, and when releasing the float, the bait presentation falls.

This is done on a continuous action through out the swim, it stays in the same trotting position down the swim, and it attracts fish like no other, gudgeon, small roach, and perch are suckers for this brilliant method float.

Made up of a balsa body, a long plastic or sarcandas reed antenna, with a nylon bristle on top, finished off with a metal wire base stem.   Shotted with a bulk down about 12', from the hook and a line of droppers from the bulk to the hook this allows direct working contact with the bait. A pulling action of the pole or whip produces a lift of the float.

This method is best used when worm fishing although I have had some success with squats and pinkie.
