How to Build a Fishing Float

The float has the duty to notify when the fish bites and is therefore a valuable tool for the purpose of fishing. It can be of various types: but if we love fishing, we can customize our equipment, using various recycled materials to make some accessories, such as the float. The latter can be built with different objects, such as a ping-pong pong, a plastic tube or more. In the next steps we see then, how to build a fishing float.

How to Build a Fishing Float

You need

Be sure to have on hand:

  • Ping pong ball
  • Plastic tube
  • Cork Stoppers
  • Polyurethane foam
  • Silicone adhesives
  • Waterproof paint
  • Burner
  • Screwdriver and awl
  • Ami

To build this important accessory for fishing, which allows us to see clearly when the fish bites the bait, we can use some materials that are easy to find. In the introductory phase we mentioned the very lightweight plastic pellet from ping pong, that we are going to use, and to explain how is the construction of a float.

The ball goes first with holes on either side, and for this, we take the tip of a screwdriver, we heat up a small flame, and then when she became red hot, we manage to sink her in the ball, getting a hole perfectly spherical. At this point, insert the nylon cord (fishing line), that either side at holes, tie a knot just like you usually do to thread the bead necklaces. The long part of the line goes obviously connected to the fishing pole, while at the end of the short one, insert the hook with a small knot and using silicon glue, to make sure it doesn’t melt. If instead we use a thin plastic tube , we can fill with polyurethane foam in order to obtain it float, and then insert the line with the same operation as described above. In this case, the float will have a rectangular shape instead of spherical, very beneficial as water fun, doesn’t create shadows and details undulations, thus priming.

Find suitable materials and especially light, is not at all difficult, so build a float is very simple. Another example, also very convenient and fast is to use a cork round or tubular, where just drill a hole with a drill or punch and insert the fishing lines, obtaining a float light and functional. In all these cases, to make the object visible in the water, we can color it with paint, making sure the pitch has to be adapted to that of a river, a lake or the sea, then green, blue or blue instead of yellow or red, which basically leaves the fish from the hook.
