STILL WATER REVERSE PEAR

Although the reverse pear shape is mostly associated with running water venues, there are times when this float works exceptionally well on still water. That is when there is a strong tow caused by the wind.
The need to hold back in a tow is very important to produce a still bait presentation, for many reasons, sometimes the top flow is going the opposite way to the bottom drift, and some fish prefer static baits presented to them. Sometimes the presentation of the bait will need to go with the tow other times the opposite way from the top surface.

Whatever the reason, this float does that job best. The still water type of reverse pear float would carry a longer as this helps to see a bite in choppy or wind wave conditions.

I have a preference in bristles on Stillwater pole floats, this I leant from the French anglers; there is no finer or more sensitive float than a metal bristle type, suspended above the surface with float grease. In my experiences this sensitive method, produces fish when other type of bristle don't.

Never under estimate the tow on a Stillwater, I have caught fish as much as three meters away from where I introduced the bait into the swim, and the opposite direction of the wind The wind creates a tow on the surface which hits the bank and then circulates underneath causing an underwater tow. In some cases the whole lake will respond in a circle drift.

This float can combat those types of conditions with a bulk down and the help of the pole ease the float in the swim in the opposite way, until you start to get bites.
Using this method and float has won me many competitions on still water lakes, one in particular was an invitation match on Mallory Park, the event was sponsored by Dave Halls angling magazine, I drew in the corner of the lake, and not a good draw, next to me was angling journalist Keith Arthur. The wind produced a tow and I managed to overcome this and ended the match with 14lb of skimmers only getting beat by big carp for the match.

Laying on with the type of float in a drift is another excellent method, once you have located the feeding fish in the swim.
Holding and releasing in a drift, also produce some good responses. This time going with the flow and an underwater drift may be going the same way.
