Pre­vent­ing pole float dam­age?

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS - Steve Froud, Red­ditch

I AT­TACH my pole floats with sil­i­cone rub­bers on the tip and stem, but the line cuts into the body of the float al­low­ing wa­ter to seep in. Is there any way of pre­vent­ing this hap­pen­ing?

YOU can add nail var­nish to the body to give it a tough outer coat that line won’t breach, but some an­glers find this af­fects how the float sits.

Al­ter­na­tively, use top and bot­tom float rub­bers, but slide the piece that sits un­der­neath the body down so it is half­way be­tween the body and the rub­ber on the stem. This doesn’t look par­tic­u­larly neat but it makes the line stand proud of the lower part of the body, so there’s less chance of it dig­ging in when put un­der stress.
