Still water pole floats are
developed very differently to running water pole floats this is
generally for the benefit of working the float in the still water.
described in the introduction to pole floats the basic designs are
developed from a pear drop or some times called tear drop. The
aerodynamics of this float is the tapering affect, allowing a sharp
taper of the body, which in turn becomes more sensitive as the float is weighted down in the water.
The broader base of the float being
down most, allows balance and stability in the still water, from this
shape most still water pole floats are developed.
With materials such as carbons
glass, polystyrene, balsa, wire, nylon, tungsten, and other space-age
compounds, pole floats are now in the 21st century, and the poor fish
have no chance at all.
In my opinion the French anglers
are the best in the World on still water pole fishing, their
development with still water pole floats over the years have been an
inspiration to me and most other great anglers in this country and
Swapping our British float methods
and techniques for pole methods and techniques have been easy for me,
for being the first World Champion to win on the British waggler has
opened many doors for me. Making many friends and acquaintances in the
international scene has had a great advantage, having swapping, and
testing many pole floats. I now pass on the knowledge to you in this
easy step-by-step manual.
Most still water pole floats have a
working capability, and how they perform in different condition depends
on the anglers knowledge, shotting is very important as well as
feeding, all this combined with a positive mental attitude and
determination, can help you catch those extra fish and who knows
perhaps a future World Champion.
