I have often been asked to make a float of this type and it is finally here. The Oliver is based on the famous “Chianti” style and shape but with the HillBilly design treatment added for extra strength it is a perfect summer compliment to my well received Frostie. The Oliver is built on a 0.6 diameter carbon stem using Tech1 foam which gives the maximum shot capacity for its size, in fact like for like more shot than a balsa version.
The Oliver is fitted with 1.5 diameter 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 five sizes and supplied with red, yellow, green or black tips.
Due to popular demand the Oliver “power” version is now also available as standard fitted with Finesse spring eyes and with the tips cut 3mm longer to allow for their fitting.
HB Top Tip
Best used with a spread bulk and two droppers and if you are getting lots of takes on the drop try spreading the bulk even further or set a smaller Oliver rig up to fish to half depth.
