Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

ALK into your lo­cal tackle shop and the shelves are al­most cer­tain to be awash with hun­dreds of pole floats.

Dozens of dif­fer­ent shapes, sizes and pat­terns have been re­leased on to the mar­ket, but mak­ing sense of when to use each one can cause con­fu­sion.

Pick­ing the right float is im­por­tant if you want to ex­pe­ri­ence a day to re­mem­ber on your favourite com­mer­cial, but you might be sur­prised at how few styles you need in your tackle box.

For­mer Fish O’Ma­nia fi­nal­ist Andy May this week re­veals the five styles of pole float that are re­quired to help you bag up from any com­mer­cial fish­ery peg this week.

skim­mers and cru­cians.

The wire stem means that it is ex­tremely sen­si­tive and will show the shyest of bites, while the large rugby ball-shaped body will keep the rig still in high winds or if the peg is be­ing ef­fected by underwater tow. Have just a small amount of bris­tle show­ing so you spot ev­ery bite.
