Q In what sit­u­a­tion is it best to fish a slider float? MARK HAYCOCK, LANCASHIRE

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

A slider float should be used if you want to fish a wag­gler in water more than 10ft deep. It can also be used to great ef­fect on shal­lower lakes if they are badly af­fected by tow. The tech­nique in­volves us­ing a semi-loaded, large, bod­ied float which once cast out is able to slide up the main­line to a stop knot tied at swim depth. A bulk of shot pro­vides the main weight to pull the main­line through the float’s bot­tom eye so it slides up the main­line. Once the stop knot is hit, the bulk will reg­is­ter, cock­ing the float. The drop­per shot then en­ables the hook­bait to fall nat­u­rally to the lakebed. This en­ables you to eas­ily fish deep wa­ters with the sen­si­tiv­ity, flex­i­bil­ity and added en­joy­ment of be­ing able to watch a float.
