A strong innovative design for fishing at long distance on the pole although it can also be employed for those deeper than average short to middle distance lines. See details below for more information.
The Dweezil is a strong innovative design for fishing at long distance on the pole although it can also be employed for those deeper than average short to middle distance lines. It is a very stable float due to its long 1mm diameter flexible fibreglass stem which also makes it a dream to use when “shipping” the pole because it minimises tangles caused by pole bounce.
This stem passes through the body of the float and into the tough Hi Viz hollow tip to which is fitted either a standard stainless steel spring eye a Finesse type stainless steel spring eye or an extra strong stainless steel side eye.
It has a rugby ball shaped body of Tech1 foam with a choice of either 1.5mm or 2mm x 40 long tips or 2.5mm x 35 long tips. The smaller sizes lend themselves to a spread bulk and droppers shotting pattern whilst the larger sizes suit the use of an olivette plus droppers. Available in 9 sizes 0.3, 0.5, 0.75, 1g, 1.25g, 1.5g, 2.0g 2.5g and 3g with red, yellow, green or black tips of either 1.5, 2.0 or 2.5mm diameter.
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.
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.
The HB Redneck is my first choice of paste float for general paste fishing. Similar to its cousin the HB Shindig but much stronger it is built on a long 1mm diameter flexible glass stem which passes right through the very strong Tech3 foam oval shaped body and supports the first 20mm of the 1.7 mm diameter x 50mm long hollow Hi Viz tip. The float is fitted with a choice of two types of stainless steel spring eye securely glued to the base of the antennae making the HB Redneck a very strong animal indeed and can also be supplied without an eye for those that prefer to use an extra float rubber instead. Having a tip length of around 50mm makes this model very suitable for the paste fishing it was designed for but it also works very well for larger baits such as corn or meat when there is a need to bury the line beneath the surface. It is best fished with a spread bulk for paste or a spread bulk and droppers for corn etc. HB Top Tip People often shy away from fishing paste if there is a strong undertow in their swim. However if you position just enough shot a couple of inches from the hook to hold the unbaited rig still and then adjust the remaining shot so that when the undertow takes full effect there is half the tip showing you will stop the water movement pulling the hook out of the paste. Bites will be big lifts of the float or savage dips sometimes pulling the elastic out of the pole before you can strike.
