I have often been asked to make a float of this style and it is finally here. Based on the famous “Chimp” style and shape but with the Hillbilly design and build treatment added for extra strength. The Blimp is a versatile all round pattern which can be used with a variety of baits when the finesse and stability of a wire stem is required.
The Blimp is built on a 0.5 diameter stainless steel stem using Tech1 foam which gives the maximum shot capacity for its size and with the wire stem passing right through the body to prevent the old problem of the stem pulling out. The Blimp is fitted with 1.5 diameter hollow Hi-Viz tips and a stainless steel side eye glued deep inside its body and is capable of fishing most baits but excels when used for maggot, caster and 4 or 6mm expander pellets.
It is available in seven sizes and supplied with red, yellow, green or black tips.
A super sensitive float aimed at F1 fishing with small soft pellets or maggot on the commercial Snake Lakes but equally at home fishing punch and squatts on your local canal. See details below for more information.
This design is one of my own favourites. The Billy-Bob is my “does it all” float for commercial and snake lake fishing and can be used to present a wide range of baits. See details below for more information.
Designed with the help of and named after top southern paste angler Dave (Pikey) Pearson this is the float to use for fishing paste in those 18” to 3 feet deep margin swims. . See description below for more information.
