Adjustable Float Rig

This float rig is designed to be cast into deep water from positions such as rock marks and piers. Due to the design of the rig and its weight and un-aerodynamic nature it will not cast more than twenty or thirty yards regardless of the casting technique that is used. As the section on float fishing methods explains floats need to be ‘cocked’ correctly so that they float upright in the water ready to register a bite, and must be set at the correct depth to target the species the angler is aiming to catch. This rig allows this to be done as the double neoprene/rig tubing stop knot at the very top of the rig can be moved up or down to change the depth at which the bait is being presented. With this rig it is best to simply feed the float, beads and weight directly onto the mainline of the reel and then add the snood on after this.

  • 4 – 6 inch sea fishing float
