Not done much float fishing recently but my mate has been coming fishing with me the past few weeks and he said he'd only ever been freshwater fishing and wants to get in to sea fishing and also said he knows a bit about float fishing so i think this maybe this is the best place to start.
However, I've always used a fixed stop knot as i don't like using elastic bands, making the float depth the maximum i want then cutting off line to change the depth to find the fish or as the tide goes out but obviously that won't work fishing low tide to high, I've never used the power gum stop knot line, is it any good? i.e does it stick properly to the line without it sliding in the water, go through line guides okay or is there another better method?

Cheers Jackson :fish:

I use a small piece of plastic tube or hear shrink, run line through top of tube out bottom then back through top out bottom and down that way once your bead,float,bead lead is on, you can just slide it up/down to suit, just slacken line around it a bit and move it, then pull line tight again! Works for me without slipping mate, ill show you next time bud!

Sounds good cheers bud, I've got some crimps i wonder if a piece of rubber tube like what comes on the hooks of lures and spinners sometimes would fit inside one and lightly crimp it on so it slides?or would that be a nightmare on casting?

Just use a 3 turn grinner knot with " drennen powergum " . If you want it completely locked slide two next to one another then if you want to adjust them then wet the line and move one at a time with thumb nail . :blink::secret:

Try Koike rubber stops (99p a packet and I'm even using them on my main traces instead of crimps).

Ernie - PM me your house number and I'll send you a packet pending us going fishing again.

Regards,

Mal
