DH11

SIZES: 0.5g, 0.75g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g, 3.0g, 4.0g

This is the perfect 'all round' pole float for rivers and it can also be used on stillwaters where there is tow.
We recommend No8 shots to be used in the two smaller sizes but olivettes and a few No8 or No10 dropper shot is a better combination for 1g and above. If you need a shorter float than these you can trim the bristle and the stem but for depths from five feet or more they are perfect as they are.

BRISTLE DIAMETERS
0.5g to 1.5g – 1.2mm plastic
2.0g to 4g – 1.5mm plastic

DH12

SIZES: 2.0g, 3.0g, 4.0g, 5.0g, 6.0g

This is a great float for big fish approaches. The bristles are a sensible thickness so that you can see them easily and the hole through the body of the float means you can use quite thick line without the fear of any float body damage.

BRISTLE DIAMETERS
2g and 3g – 1.5mm plastic
4g – 1.7mm plastic
5g and 6g – 2.0mm plastic

DH13

SIZES: 0.5g, 0.75g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g, 3.0g, 4.0g, 5.0g, 6.0g

This pattern features the same body shape as our popular DH11 but with a carbon stem and differing length, thicker hollow bristles.
The 0.5g up to 1.5g sizes have 1.5mm bristles while the 2g and 3g sizes have 1.7mm. New 4g, 5g and 6g are also now available.
The stems have deliberately been left long as these are better for deep water. For anglers who prefer shorter stems, it's an easy job to carefully trim the stems down with a blade.

BRISTLE DIAMETERS
0.5g to 1.5g – 1.5mm hollow
2g, 3g and 4g – 1.7mm hollow
5g and 6g – 2.0mm hollow

DH14

SIZES: 0.1g, 0.2g, 0.3g, 0.4g, 0.5g

This silver fish pattern features differing lengths differing lengths of 1.5mm hollow bristles which makes them ultra visible at distance while retaining the sensitivity required to catch shy biting roach.

They're superb for shallow stillwaters and slow moving rivers with baits like hemp, casters, maggots and pinkies.

BRISTLE DIAMETERS
All 1.5mm hollow

DH15

SIZES: 0.2g, 0.3g, 0.4g, 0.5g, 0.6g, 0.8g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g

This is another silver fish pattern with 1.5mm hollow bristles and more condensed bodies plus longer stems than the DH14. This makes it a perfect pattern to use in depths up to 10ft with a strung out light-shotting pattern.

BRISTLE DIAMETERS All 1.5mm hollow

DH16

SIZES: 0.2g, 0.3g, 0.4g, 0.5g, 0.6g, 0.8g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g, 2.5g, 3.0g, 4.0g, 5.0g, 6.0g

This pattern, with differing length 1.5mm hollow bristles and carbon stems is the one to go for when you're fishing rivers with pace, as the shape of the float will help you to slow the float and hookbait down.
In the smaller sizes, this float is perfect for long pole/ short line fishing with baits like hemp, tares, maggots and casters.
We've now added 0.80g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g, 2.5g, 3g, 4g, 5g and 6g sizes. Above 1g, we recommend the use of an olivette as a bulk with a few small No8 or No9

BRISTLE DIAMETERS
0.20g to 2g – 1.5mm hollow
2.5g to 4g – 1.7mm
5g and 6g – 2.0mm

DH17

SIZES: 0.4g, 0.6g, 0.8g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g

This new design came about as a result of many anglers asking us for slimmer versions of our popular DH16 pattern.
The range of six floats feature carbon stems and 1.5mm hollow bristles in differing lengths relative to the float size and length.
It can be used for short line work with take apart poles or with short and long telescopic or elasticated long whips. We recommend using either spread shot or small bulk rigs for the smaller sizes up to 0.80g and olivettes as bulk weights in the bigger sizes up to 2g.

NEW FOR 2018

DH18

SIZES: 0.4g, 0.6g, 0.8g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g

This tapered ‘pencil’ float has been designed for long line whip fishing on slow moving rivers and stillwaters. All the sizes feature 1.2mm plastic bristles and are ideally suited to depths between 4ft and 10ft. The bristles can be easily shortened with scissors if a shorter length is preferred.
These floats can be fished with strung out shot but a bulk in the form of a DH On-Line olivette and two or three small No9 or No10 droppers is the best shotting arrangement for floats of 0.80g and above.

BRISTLE DIAMETERS
All 1.2mm hollow

DH19

SIZES: 0.5g, 0.75g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g, 2.5g, 3.0g, 4.0g

Another tapered ‘pencil’ float for long line whip fishing. Big weights of dace and roach were regularly taken on prototypes of this float last season from rivers like the Severn and Wye. All the floats in this pattern feature a 1.5mm hollow bristle and the range is ideally suited to depths from 4ft to 14ft.
This is the float to use on low rivers when the flow isn’t too great. Like the DH18, the shape of the float has very little resistance to taking fish, which means you connect with more bites.
Best shotting pattern is with a DH On-Line olivette and two or three No8 dropper shot.

DH20

SIZES: 0.3g, 0.4g, 0.5g, 0.6g

This range of very short floats has been designed for use with whips in shallow water. The body of this pattern is very similar to the DH19 but these are much shorter floats. The short 1.5mm plastic bristle is easy to see in pacey water and it’s a great float for catching fast biting fish like dace and bleak.

All 1.5mm hollow

New for 2018

DH21

SIZES: 0.5g, 0.75g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g, 2.5g, 3.0g

Our DH13 range has become a very popular with anglers all over the UK and in Europe and this new design has been developed in response to the anglers who have contacted us requesting the same pattern with a thinner 1.2mm hollow bristle. It’s ideally suited to slow moving rivers and stillwaters in depths from 4ft to 12ft. Best shotting pattern is with a DH On-Line olivette and two or three No9 or No10 droppers. BRISTLE DIAMETERS All 1.2mm hollow

New for 2018

DH22

SIZES: 0.5g, 0.75g, 1.0g, 1.5g, 2.0g

This is another pattern with a 1.2mm bristle across the sizes. Many anglers prefer this longer out body shape to the DH13 or DH21 in very slow moving water. Best shotting pattern is with a DH On-Line olivette and two or three No9 or No10 droppers. BRISTLE DIAMETERS All 1.2mm hollow
