THE LONG SHOULDER PEAR

The long shoulder pear pole float is one of my favourite pole floats, due to the way it performs in running water. The streamline body now starts to resemble more of a stick float in design.
An elongated pear shape with a high shoulder, wire or carbon stem and a nylon bristle.
This float was first introduced to me by Phil Brisco of Leeda Tackle company, whilst making a video film and being joined by the famous footballer Paul Gasgione, fishing on the South Fourtyfoot Drain in deep water.

Although this float was used on deep canal type of venue, I have since found that it works much better on running water.

Stringing out the shots with reducing sizes, allows the float to fish with a slow drop presentation whilst the float is held back in the flow it gently rises and lifts the bait off the bottom.

I have used this float to great effect on the Bristol Avon, winning the Southern Pole Championships with over 16lb of prime roach, on the drop and many other successes on the river, including the Warwickshire Avon, River Thames, River Severn and the River Wye, combining loose fed hemp and maggot.
Catapulting loose offering of hemp plus caster or maggot, into the swim and then allowing the float to trundle amongst the feed, creating a natural presentation through the water, as the float settles often than not will attract a responding bite.

The float was originally manufactured by Italian company Colmic, however I have changed the design slightly with great affect and winning an Evesham Qualifying match with 16lb of roach is my satisfaction. The float works well in deep water, fishing on the drop and will catch fish at all levels, slightly over shotting the float will help in controlling the downward trot.

Sizes vary from gram to 1. gram, sometimes it is better to shot the float using styles on the line, as it helps to present your bait slowly and as naturally as possible and will help to eliminate phantom bites from round split shots whilst using hemp.
