Taking 4 -5 no 4 shot these will be great for the shallow spate rivers he fishes.


The next styles to be up-graded are the  " Domed Alloy Stick " & the  " Inserted Alloy Stick Float"

Lower Irwell Silvers & A Lump !!!! Stick Float Fishing

Image
A long over due trip on the  Lower River Irwell
 to test out my new stepped stick floats was tonight's mission.
Many in our club would like to know where all the silvers and small barbel have gone ?
So tonight was a scouting session to try and find them
!!!!!!!!!! I opted for my Abu 704 closed faced reel tonight as the wind was a little gusty coupled with my 14 foot Acolyte Plus. Bait was two pints of white maggots, a pint of hemp. Two stepped stick float rigs were knocked up at home and stored on line winders.

All was ready for my little experimental session.
😁 It took around 30 minutes or my first bite and fish, a lovely chunky dace of around 5 ounces.  I shallowed my rig a little and placed a No 4s back shot on about 15 centimetres from the float to aid my presentation and got and instant response, small but very welcome. 😁 Felling a little more confident I steadily upped my feed of hemp and maggots hoping to attracted the larger fish.  Increasing the feed seemed to work as …

New 7 Inch Two-Tone Inserted Wagglers.

Image
I have made this set of five  7 Inch Two-Tone Inserted Wagglers for fishing close for general fishing on small baits. As the others these are made of reed and cane, metallic pearlescent paint with black, gold & red whippings. This set takes approximately 4 BB and also has black tips for awkward light conditions.
A good general float which will always have a place in my float tube.

Stepped Stick Floats For Maggot & Caster Fishing

Image
As you all know  I LOVE  ❤ my stick float fishing, especially on the pin so I have made a few more for silver fishing up to approximately seven foot deep. One in metallic , pearlescent blue &  one in metallic green. Both of these have jay feather inlays plus black, gold and scarlet whippings. I have not used these to yet but have caught a few nice chub on the prototype last month. 😉
The chub where caught on the  River Severn,  Hampton Loade. Stick and pin. I have a river in mined where I want to try these out, those in the inner circle will know exactly where I will be roach fishing with these beauties...lol.

Two Tone Straight Wagglers

Image
I treated a friend to a new float. He wanted a straight waggler so I knocked up a standard one....then.....thought....... hold on, I can do better than that so I made him a  " Two Tone Straight Waggler " I like these a lot, they are a little blingie just like the inserted versions but we both liked the out come.

I will also be making these will a longer fluorescent tip for river fishing. Enjoy my friend.
