Och hoots naw! I know how to set all my float rigs up BUT for the novice piker, I can definitely see the advantages and the prices aren't too bad either really. Once you've been piking for a while you'll be able to put it all together yourself without thinking for half the price.

You only need....

Gazette Slotted Pike Bung, with hollow centre tube to make it sliding or fixed if you wish.

Elastic band (free on the pavement with thanks to the postie) or power gum for stop knot. (about a quid from the tackle shop)

Drilled bullet for the weight. (10p each or some rubbish)

Pack of 10 buffer beads. Useful for protecting all your knots etc. (2 quid for 10?)

Same rig for a few shekels..... Wink

How about go to a pike fishing website and look for yourself. It's normally under pike rigs.

You tube.....yea I'll spend half the day filming how to put a float rig together so I can put up something that's on the net a million times already.

Try Google.....free roving pike rig or something similar should do it.

OK lazy arse, I'll do it.

I take it you mean a Drifting rig Paddy?

You can easily make drifters by following my buoyant leger stem instructions and altering them to suit. It's not that different. You'll get the idea.

You can do a similar thing with a paperclip attached to the trace swivel. Blow up a balloon and twist it closed. Don't knot it or it stays inflated and who knows where it could end up. Once you've inflated the balloon, you lightly jam it in the paperclip and gently lower your leger rig into the water. Let the wind carry your rig out to the desired distance, spot, wherever and when you get there, give the line a sharp tug, which releases the balloon and the balloon deflates and perishes and your leger rig sinks directly under the spot where the balloon was last seen, which acts as a handy marker. I carry a bag of pink balloons for this very purpose.

Guys take care with this setup.....There is a massive flaw in the diagram.

If you use a FOX or Prowla ledger stem as the bouyancy aid in the diagram,it implies you tie your lines to the top and bottom of the aid/stem.This system will only work safley if you modify the FOX/PROWLA stems and cut the eyes off both ends.The diagram should show the line passing through the tubing.

Under no circumstances must you tie main lines the ledger stems eyes....they snap off Sad

Just my bit.

why would you use a ledger stem the line runs through the bottom part of the drifter float ? Very Happy

I think there's a massive flaw in your understanding of the diagram. I don't think it implies that at at all. I think it's quite clear how it works. I can't see anywhere that suggests the line is tied to the tubing whatsoever. It clearly shows the line passing through the tubing with a stop knot at the top. The very fact there is a stop-knot means the line isn't fixed to the tubing at all.

Andy your missing the point......The diagram you posted could be read by a novice Pike angler.These are people that would copy the elements of the rig and nip off down to there local tackle shop,picking up the parts needed to copy the setup.As you cannot easly purchase the item needed in the diagram you posted, they pick up something that looks similar and is a common find.Just so you know what they look like Andy i have attached a photo....If you have never seen one before the only place to attach line is weak plastic eyes designed to hold lead weights.So again as a follow up, dont purchase Fox/Prowla stems unless you what to adapt them by cutting the eyes off to tube.Using a stopknot system.

Aye they're strictly leger stems though....not the same as the drifting rig and meant for running leger setups only, hence the name. No need for cutting them. Buy a drifter setup and it's hollow already.

If you're going to make drifter floats, forget the leger stems and use a length of John Roberts rig tubing and make my leger stems but without the curtain rings. Just add a swivel, lock in place at the opposite end from the poppers. Make a vane from another length of tubing and the vane itself from a butter tub lid. You can even even buy packs of vanes in 3 colours. Orange, yellow and black.
