OVAL BODY POLE FLOAT

This type of float is very versatile, due to its shape, it is sandwiched between a Stillwater and a running water float, and can be used on a variety of waters.

The English team used this float to good effect in the World championship in Finland at Laperantere. The venue was a deep water flowing canal type of venue, similar to the Gloucester canal, holding back the float when there is a flow on and just letting it go when it eased up.

The nature of this float is that you can do both hold back or let it drift. Smaller version can be seen on small canals, used by anglers in the know.

Shotted with a bulk down and dropper shots. Sizes range from 4x16 up to 3 grams.
I used this float to good effect in France on the River Rhine near Strasbourg, France in the 1986 World championships, winning the first day event with 17lb   of bream.
Using a split olivine method, I could change the bulk down and split the weight to allow the float to catch the flow. Sometimes this presentation of moving the bait works very well, especially if you use bloodworm on moving water.

The bloodworm swims and comes off the bottom; the lighter weight down produces a good presentation allowing the bait to go with the flow, as the fish follow the worm. When the flow pushes harder and you want the bait to stay near the bottom, simply pull the Olivetti’s together and the weight is then transferred back to the bottom ready for holding back

A lot of these pole floats have a very shiny surface to them. I like to rub the body over with a black matt marker pen; this stops the float from being too reflective and helps with camouflage.
