maggot feeder float. This float was an
invention of mine that I developed for a
particular venue back in1971. for a medium
size lake on the outskirts of my home town
Woodstock Pond Newport, Gwent.
popular South Wales match venue has an
island in the middle, and the fish namely
roach, Rudd, Skimmer bream, Crucian carp
and tench, they all swam to a very close
proximity to the island and the only way
to catch these fish was to get as close as
possible to the island Loose feeding
pinkies and on occasions maggot, it
was the only way to get a response from
those finicky fish
and loose feeding pinkies was a major
problem at 45 yards.
sticky maggot, groundbait etc.. And the
closest I could get was with a Dave Thomas
feeder float, but the only problem was,
this float emptied its contents upon the
float entering the water, displacing the
maggots into one spot, plus with no
question I asked my self was ''How can I
get loose fed pinkies as close to this
island as possible at a range of 45 feet,
and within 12'' of the island, with
accuracy and at the same time cast my
float into this area.
answer was to come up with the idea of a
maggot feeder combined with a float. I
used a large clear crystal waggler and
super glued it into the middle of a small
plastic feeder (after taking the weight
out) I then inserted a long plastic
antenna into the top of the float.
this float worked! By shotting the float
as a normal waggler allowing for the
weight of the maggots (hence the plastic
long antenna) as the maggots dripped out
of the feeder the antenna would slowly
rise, but as soon as I had a bite the
float would sink or disappear.
For heavier fishing I use a
straight waggler without an insert.
This float has worked
wonders for me in all sorts of situations,
it is a specialized float that I made many
years ago and now I am re Introducing them
back into the market place with Gold Medal
Floats. Using selected materials I have
put together this unique float design.
My feeder float is the original maggot
feeder float and well balanced, and many
float manufactures have tried to copy. I
wrote an article once in a weekly
angling paper and had some good reports
of others trying it out.
