What Dave Harrell says...
This is a great float for targeting barbel and chub in fast shallow water. It’s the perfect float for any fast water situation where buoyancy and visibility are the key requirements.
I always use this pattern with an olivette rather than a bulk of shot as it’s far less prone to tangle this way and casts much better too. Below the olivette, which is fixed about 18 inches to two foot from the hook, I use one shot, which is usually a No4 or a No1 when I’m using maggots or casters.
For big baits like pellets, meat, corn and bread it’s often better to just have the bulk about a foot to eighteen inches above the hook with no drop shot.
