(Mark Pollard) MP Floats
A number of Fishing friends have asked me about the (Mark Pollard) MP Floats I use and why so would explain a little further. 75% of my current fishing nowadays is utilised with these patterns, I currently fish waters I am happy with and my availability of sessions dictate that I try and carry as less tackle as possible but with the knowledge of having a rig for all occasions.
Have used the range from around 2015/2016 when in the Blue Format of the Range to now the current Black Version.
MP1 is the classic silver , delicate fish pattern with the wire stem for extra presentation and fine antenna with bright tip to dot right down to see shy biting fish, Most of my Canal and Natural lake work up to 5ft are go to number 1 pattern nowadays.
MP3 is a Patten I carry and use when there may be tow or slight flowing water due to the shape of the body that sits better for presentation or alternatively can be used for bigger baits holding back or to hold the deck or lay over -depth on the bottom.
MP 4 accompanies this range and is my all round float due to the carbon stem for sensitivity or alternatively to hold bait down on the deck if required or shallow off bottom work with a thicker tip aiding presentation, Varity of baits from pinkie to worm and corn to Pellet the floats performs just as good for all these occasion’s.
MP7 is a more classic dibber style for shallow work, either up in the water with Varity of baits to far bank on snake lakes or canals in inches of water to avoid fewer disturbances with the ability to support bigger baits if required.
MP Roach is the classic Roach rig for variety of baits and depths in still or Flowing and deep waters due to the nature of the rig and bulbous body to allow perfect presentation whilst having the carbon stem to help and aid sensitive presentation.
MP Roach Wire is the latest addition to the MP range and features all the attributes of the original Roach Rig but this time with a wire stem helping when fishing in windy conditions. A long, wire stem helps keep the float stable while it also helps ‘cock’ the float quickly in the water and reduces the amount of shot needed.
There are other Floats and styles in the range that might suit you’re angling requirements, these are just my personnel favourites and go to floats for many occasions.
