    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.

    Preston dura 6 are wot i use,match the size to the depth and the wind,the rig will be ok tripping thro but must be stable and not tripping to quickly,4 x 18 can be used in 3 - 4ft sometimes.

    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.
