This float is a little gem for those windy days where you need to constantly lift and drop baits such as small expanders and maggot when trying to catch F1’s. See details below for more information.
The F1 Wire is a little gem for those windy days where you need to constantly lift and drop baits such as small expanders and maggot when trying to catch F1’s. It is built on a long 0.6 diameter stainless steel stem solidly glued into its Tech1 foam body which makes it extremely stable.
The floats body has a necked down portion just above the point where the stainless steel side eye is securely glued 12mm deep into the body. This feature enables the bulk or spread bulk shot on the rig to break any surface tension on the line and side eye which allows the dropper shot to register freely on the floats 25mm long 1.2 diameter Hi Viz hollow tip. As the long wire stem makes the float incredibly stable any shot needed to trim the rig can be spread out to let the bait fall as naturally as possible with the size of shot being reduced nearest to the hook.
These are available in 4×10, 5×10 and 6×10 stotz weight sizes with red, yellow, green or black tips.
HB Top Tip
When shotting the rig have a spread bulk that sinks the float just over the shoulder as this will submerge the line from float to pole and allow the dropper shots to register on the neck and tip better. For F1’s feed three or four maggots or a few micros then lift and drop the rig a few times before lifting the rig right out of the water and laying it in again.
Repeat the lifting and dropping sequence before shipping back to refill the pole pot and doing the whole thing over again. F1’s tend to watch a sinking bait then take it as it hits the bottom.
