LONG OVAL POLE FLOAT

The long oval type of shape pole floats are generally recognized as whip or pole to hand floats, although they can work equally as well on a breaking down pole.
The nature of the shape of this float, lends it to be very sensitive, it can have wire, cane, and nylon bristles, with wire, cane, carbon   base stems.

Weighting these floats are done by spaced shotting or styles or bunched in intervals down the line for quicker sinking presentation.

Smaller oval pole floats work well on small canals and other smaller venues; the shape of the float allows it to trot with a flow, holding back it tends to ride up in the water.
Fishing a winter league on the Kennet and Avon Canal one year saw me catching reasonably well on this float, with a breaking down pole method yet I knew I had to speed up my catch rate of those small blade skimmers, by adding extra line to my pole so it became a float to hand method helped me to amass over 300 skimmers giving me a weight of over l 71b.

It is the only float that I know that can work equally well as a pole to hand float and a breaking down pole method.

This float comes in a variety of oval shapers, and sizes, the larger cousins are used frequently on big fish bagging sessions, I have used them often in Ireland and Denmark and have had match weights of 1421b and 1361b respectively on the river Blackwater, Ireland.
When winning the Boyle festival Southern Ireland 1989 I used a large oval type pole to hand method. It is the only shape float that ranges from a 4x18 up to a 10grams that can be used on such a wide variety of water.

  As a rule of thumb, a wire bristle float is used for smaller rigs, such as small canals and Stillwater, nylon, or cane tips, for larger and heavier fishing.
Smaller floats are best used with reducing size style leads, and larger floats with reducing size split shots.
