THE WIRE STEM STICK FLOAT

The wire stem or Alloy stem stick was initially designed to handle difficult boils in the swim, helping it to stabilize in the turbulent water. Later this became a favorite float because of the ease of handling it, a semi cocked float, which needed less shots down the line. Anglers found that this float could be used in almost every condition, and soon the shape of the float changed. The float took on a continental look with aerodynamic shapes similar to some pole floats The wire stem also changed, and in some cases become an alloy metal, this combination become a firm favorite, with anglers scoring some big catches. An angler who developed this float more than most was John Allerton, from the North of England; he used this float to great affect on the Trent and other waters winning major competitions. This float become surmountable with his name.

With the float now taking on a shoulder, the float can be held back with ease, the surface skim would pass over the shoulder, helping to keep the float low and controllable, slowing up the presentation. This float would present the bait almost perfect, especially when the surface skim was faster them the current below.
  With the heavier alloy metal base, casting is also easier, making this float a good all rounder.

The thinner wire stem stick has still got its uses, smaller shallower rivers, and with the wire giving a stable presentations this float should always serve a purpose. I find with a smaller wire stem there is less movement of the float in turbulent swims with a thicker stem the float tends to lean.
When fishing turbulent swims, its best to string the shots more down the line at the business end, or bulking down is just as good, with less chance of the bait swirling around. A few shots close to the hook are also a good idea.

With a shoulder float, it tends to dunk in the water when striking hard, so not to spook the fish a gentle pulling strike is preferred, unless you want to make the angler down stream, jump as Well.
