Description:
I have classed this separately to normal float fishing though it is very similar in approach.

This is a method normally described as Mullet fishing but it is equally at home when fishing for Bream or Garfish and Mackerel.

A very light float and rod is used to give minimum resistance to the fish making the bait seem as natural as possible.

I personally use a barbell rod rated at 1.5lb test curve and for a float either a freshwater waggler from 3AAA to a 6g Piker float in windy or rougher conditions. A bubble float may also be used at times when distance casting is required to reach the fish.

A very light float is used so that the fish, when taking the bait, feels very little resistance. When fishing for a fish such as Mullet, they can be very wary and will not take the bait if they have any suspicion that it isnít right.
