    Default How many floats...

    Do you tend to lose?

    I float fish a lot and it was around eighteen months ago that I last lost a float, before that I can't remember but on the last occasion even that wasn't without a fight...







    So I reckon I'm not too bad when it comes to losing floats but sitting on 'em is a different matter altogether

    Are you a tree magnet when it comes to losing floats?

    Can it be combined with a 'Tight Git Wants His Float Back' award?

    I honestly can't recall the last float I lost. I've broken a few or lost detachable tips and bodies, but that's about it. I can't remember the last one I lost to a tree despite ending up in trees occasionally. Fortunately, I've become pretty adept at successful kit from tree removal techniques. However, I generally manage to avoid casting into trees these days. When I end up in them it's invariably down to a fish.

    I am usually able to get floats back when caught in trees because they are behind me.
    I may be old, but I ain't dead yet.

    I've got a little bit of history on this topic but only lost one in the last year and that was to a manic brownie on the Cleddau in August under an overhanging tree, tomorrow may be a different story

    I don't really loose any floats through casting into trees but I do have them breaking when fish drag them through boulders etc on the river or just coming apart through usage.
    Occasionally and if i'm fishing straight through I might hook into a sunken tree or some other snag and if the hook doesn't open up or the line doesn't snap below the float i'll loose it.

    I don't lose many but then I don't catch many! Is there a connection to that phenomenon ?
