How do you attach a foam float to a fishing line?
How do you set up a floating rig for fishing?
- Push the line end through the Bobber Stopper tube and slide the tube a few feet up the line.
- String the line end through the bead and then through the slip float, top-to-bottom.
- Tie on your hook or jig and add a split shot or two above the hook, if desired.
How far should float be from hook?
Set the float first
At the moment you should have a float on the line, fixed at about 18 inches (45 cm) up the line from the hook. If you swing the line out into the water now, the float will either lay flat on the surface or perhaps poke out of the water several inches.
