THE RIGHT FLOAT
I like a float that will cast well without making too much of a splash. Drennan’s loaded Pellet Wagglers are ideal as they fly perfectly and don’t submerge too much when they land. In terms of size, it all depends on how far away the island is so this could be a 4g float or as much as a 10g model!
Occasionally the float might dive a little too much, which can scare the fish, so I’ll slip on a plastic ‘dive disc’ which works like a brake.
My only other waggler of choice for hot days when the fish may be sitting just inches deep is a shorter, chunkier hand-made design. These floats don’t look pretty but they work well.
