    I reckon a 4x12 Pole Float will be fine.

        I have some Tamas Walter series 0.3/0.4/0.5 would they perform the same.
        Thanks for replying Col.

            Probably too late now, but it will depend on the weather.
            If it's really blowing, a canal grey type waggler can work a treat. Also, it is easy to get obsessed by trying to catch really quick and missing loads of bites. In those circumstances, a short pole to hand is sometimes quicker as you hit more bites and the rig is in the water for longer.

              Steve.
              Good reply as it turned out,was drawn on corner peg of lake weather was nice and calm to start . Wind started to blow left to right into my corner bringing all the leaves and scum into my swim.Had set up two whips 2.5mtr and 4mtr with Tamas Walter (roach plus??) float.Should have set up some waggler type rig for better control in the wind,fished punch/crumb inside and fed hemp longer, most fish came long to tares on the hook slapping it on the water similar to shallow pellet fishing.As you said in your reply i got carried away trying to be clever and catch too quickly and fed too much hooked a big carp and that was the end of that.
              Regards Col.

                if its windy, try a Drake 'crow quill waggler for whip fishing'. 0.35 - 0.65g, they are sock-on in a breeze. Otherwise I'd use a colmic jolly.

                      Nice one Col, I think you will be impressed. I used to use a drennan canal waggler but wanted a finer tip and these fitted the bill perfectly.

                        The best whip floats I have ever used are the Tubertini Pro 13 - they are the ones Mr Scotthorne uses so bet they aint rubbish! Search for them on Google.

                          Never heard of this Scotthorne fellow,his Pro 13 float is very like the Tamas Walter floats . I was looking for floats that would alleviate the problems i have with wind!!!!.Mr Scotthorne should have a word with Jon W who will no doubt bring him up to speed on the finer points of float fishing.

                            The old crowquill wagglers, takes me back to fishing the Taunton & Bridgwater and being pools fodder for Mike Stone.
                            Happy days!

                              if you have trouble getting bottom end floats just heat shrink a small swivel to the bottom of your favourite float pattern and hey presto
