TIP 7 –

USE THE RIGHT FLOAT TIP

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

BRIGHT, au­tumn days can be a night­mare for see­ing a pole float tip. If you have a solid far bank or a big ex­panse of open water, it’s not so bad, but when you have a mix of light and dark sec­tions of water it can be a prob­lem. Pick your spot care­fully, and also bear in mind whether the sun is likely to move round into your eye­line. In this in­stance, or in white, open water, a black float tip is best.

Red and yel­low bris­tles are bet­ter when the sun is be­hind you or to the side. Hol­low plas­tic bris­tles will pick up light much bet­ter and are miles eas­ier to see than any­thing else, but they are not as sen­si­tive as other types of float tip.

A marker pen al­lows you to change the float tip colour.
