    Default Windy conditions

    Which sort of pole float is best to use in windy conditions. Fishing in around 3ft - 4ft 6" of water catching anything sort of fish and using 4/6MM pellets and sweet corn as baits.

    Jay is right - the lead core used as a backshot is excellent then you should find you can use your normal floats just heavier patterns.
