THE STEPPED WAGGLER

This waggler is a continuation and a development from the inserted waggler, used instead of the single insert for a dual purpose, i.e... It can be used for dragging the bottom of the swim slowing up the bait and at the same time have that extra sensitivities to the tip. The stepped waggler has the benefit of carrying extra weight and shotting capacity, used also for distance fishing and deeper swims to combat wind drift.
 
These floats are used extensively by the German and Austrian angler's, they use them with great affect on their huge lakes. I was presented with some in Bulgaria at the World Championships in 1989 from the international team of Austria. Lake plodviv had a tendency to surface drift, and these floats worked a treat, casting long distances and holding bottom. History will tell you that our Welsh team went on to win with a record number of points, the first team in history to win the title using the waggler. I personally went on to win the second day event, with over 28lb of carp, roach, bream and vinders,.

The peacock stepped waggler is made up of a series of reducing diameter peacocks, inserted into each other, creating a stepped affect. Used in conjunction with a loaded base it is a perfect float for distance fishing, yet still giving the angler good distinctive vision and sensitivity. With the long stepped  peacocks, they can be coloured in a series of different shades so that with the changing backdrop that is common in big lake fishing the float can be seen easily. A must for the tackle box.

For long range distance fishing I recommend an open faced reel, as these tend not to bed the line in, also it allows the line to come off the reel easier giving longer distance in casting.

A little tip is to always carry a tube of quick drying super glue, this can be used when damaging floats in transit, and quick drying fluorescent paint for chipped surfaces.

The stepped waggler has the benefit of carrying extra weight and shotting capacity, used also for distance fishing and deeper swims to combat wind drift.

If you want to sink the line after casting into the water, just place the top end of the rod (Top eye) into the water and retrieve a few feet. (This will help to eliminate drift of the line) Casting the waggler from the side is a  bit more complicated, it can be done with a bit of practice, simply hold the rod from your waist holding on to the line above the bait making the rod bend for a catapult action.
