I received a GORTINI package today on my return from a nice day pleasure fishing on Whitedoor Dam. The first batch of production Clear Diamond 4×12 floats.
Rigged up on 0.13 line. 5 No10 stotz with a No11 to dot it down. First outing tomorrow on the over 60’s match on Haydock Park Farm.
Had a package in the post this morning, just in time to rig up and test at tomorrows Partridge Lakes Open. Designed specifically for stability in open water.
Brian had discussed with me his intention to bring a diamond body float to his, already comprehensive range of floats. 4×12 and 4×14 Diamond body with a 4×10 maybe in the near future.
These floats are a clear glass fibre stem, which is short, but a long stem is also in the pipeline, the tip is 2mm.
I rigged these floats up ready for an outing tomorrow. The 4×14 I rigged at 36″ with 5 No 8 stotz, this takes the float down to the base of the tip and fine tuning shot can be added later. The 4×12 rigged at 24″ with 5 No 10 again fine tuning shot at the bank.
The 4×14 has 3 No 8 stotz backshot, 1 at 3/4 tip and 2 at 4″ up. Same on the 4×12 but with No 11 stotz.
A review of these floats will be in my fishing report after the open tomorrow.
