I then shot the float to match how I want to fish it. So a small float may have a string or bulk of No.9, 10 or 11 Stotz or even two No.6 shot on a 0.2g float if I want a bulk. Anything over 0.4g I use a bulk or olivette.
For most of my canal work I use a 0.2g float that takes 7 No. 9 Stotz plus some No.13 for fine tuning. I will string the Stotz out at first but bulk them up if catching well. For margin carp it is two No. 6 shot on a 0.2g float.
