I have noticed this phenomenon. Was it the float moving so slightly it almost appears to change colour or did it send out the tiniest of ripples? Who knows but I sometimes marvel/chuckle at anglers fishing with about 3 inches of float sticking out of the water. I call it the Beachy Head Lighthouse method.
