    Default Perch sliding float

    Can anyone suggest a good sliding perch float for use on fair deep rivers on a paternoster set up with minnows I have pike sliders but there far to larger for perch. I use normal dreannan bobbers on stillwaters

    Sensas used to market a Bolo slider float that took up to 15g, and also a Central Slider balsa float for small livebaits that looked like the old Pike pilot floats from yesteryear . . . .

    Hope that helps . . . . .

    If you cant find a suitable one available in a shop you could choose a polyball of the size you want then push a bit of stiff rig tube through the middle and glue it in place.

    I recently bought one of these floats, expensive but beautifully made with adjustable weights, don’t see why they wouldn’t work a treat for perch.

    These are okay in the smaller sizes for live baiting.

    If you want a smaller or more streamlined float you could try modifying a pellet waggler by putting some eyes on it.

    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    Wine cork with one of those lollipop tubes pushed through or the same thing with a beer can widget instead of a wine cork.
