Pike fishing is an exhilarating sport, requiring specific gear for the best results. One key component is the float, with specialized varieties like the KODEX DRIFTER (1775c) and KODEX Cigar Slider Pike Float standing out. The KODEX DRIFTER is a unique float featuring a built-in detachable vane for drifting your setup over large distances, ideal for pike fishing. This method doesn’t require expensive alarms or drop-off indicators, making it an exciting and affordable option.
The versatility of these floats is unmatched. They can be used in various waters, including drains, small rivers, and lakes. They’re suitable for a range of bait types, from small to large. When using a pike drifter float rig, it’s important to choose a swim with room to drift. The KODEX Cigar Slider Pike Float, for example, is a versatile, cigar-shaped slider float that can be converted to bottom-end-only fishing, if required.
These floats have transformed pike fishing. They’re made from high-impact plastic, ensuring precision and durability. Each float is green with a bright red tip, featuring a wire eye and the PAC logo. They’re designed to avoid the need for beads and stop knots, simplifying the setup.
When it comes to sensitivity, unloaded floats are preferred by many anglers. They can detect bites more effectively, tilting over and laying flat for an unmistakable indication. Loaded floats, on the other hand, are often criticized for leading to deep-hooked pike.
Finally, the craftsmanship behind these floats is noteworthy. Handmade floats, traditional Ash framed landing nets, leather float tubes, and catapults showcase the dedication to quality in pike fishing gear.
