The dibber float needs very little shot to achieve its correct position in the water. It has a very buoyant tip allowing bigger baits to be fished off the bottom. This rig is best used in shallow water or on the canal system. Ideally suited to far bank canal fishing, margin and shallow water carp fishing.
Simple to make up. Place three number 8 shot on the line and attach your hook length. Use line and hook sizes suitable to your baits. A 20 or 22 for caster maggot and squat and a 14 0r 16 for meat or sweet corn.
