Drennan Loafer Floats

$2.95

For those "low and clear" days out on the stream, the Drennan Loafer Floats may be just the edge you need to be successful. The Drennan Loafer float is made of clear plastic with its shape allowing a clean strike with minimal disturbance at the surface of the water. This float is also popular for use in shallow fast flowing water.

We stock the Drennan Loafer floats in five sizes ranging in lengths from 3¼" to 5½" long. In addition to the length, each float is marked with a gram weight on the side. This weight is not the weight of the float itself, but rather the amount of weight in grams that the float will support. We carry four colors of caps for these floats, yellow, orange, flo. orange and flo. pink.

These are "loose" floats, meaning they do not come in a separate package. The rubber float caps used to attach the float to the fishing line are sold separately.

Specifications for the Drennan Loafer Floats can be seen in the Specifications tab above.

Michigan City, Indiana

About Me:
This float is awesome. When fished properly and balanced properly they are the best on the market. The only drawback is that they are a little hard to see when making long drifts but that is a very minor problem. These floats work best in low and clear water like we have alot of time here out on Trail Creek Indiana and they work well in both slow and fast water as well.

Pros: Float Fishing, excellent floats

About Me:

Use these exclusively for steelhead float fishing in the Great Lakes region. They provide a very stealthy presentation, minimize resistance when bit, and I love them. Also provides very little surface noise when reeled back to shore. A must for steelhead float fishing here. They hold an amazing amount of weight for their size.


Pros: quiet, stealthy

Cons: rubber bands sometimes break

About Me:

These floats offer little to no resistance to fish when the intial strike happens. I see a marked positive difference in the amount of hook sets when compared to other float types. Overall these are one of the best floats for steelhead fishing, hands down. There only downfall is visibility. If your vision is not so good I would recommend dipping the top of these floats in some more neon jig paint to give them a tad more visability.

I was first given the 8g float by a friend visiting from Europe. After the first use, float fishing for smallmouth buffalo in approx 10 fow with slight river current, i was sold on its ease of use and its sensitivity. I immediately ordered the rest of the sizes and have used them with great results in both stillwater and river applications. most recently used in a freshwater lake during a heavily chop, rigged as a slip float fishing the outside edges of lily pads for pumpkinseeds. I recommend a good set of shot, as proper shotting enables this float to shine.

I like being able to adjust the depth of my presentation with the Drennan Floats. I'm able to fish all segments of a Steelhead / trout stream with this float. I've increased my catch rate of Steelhead / Trout by 30%. Only problem I've experience is that I wish the top of the float was bigger or glowed sometimes it's hard to watch that top part of the float on the stream when a strike does happen.

When it is low, slow and clear, put on the 2gm version of this float on and you will better your chances of hooking up. Its visual footprint is small making it an excellent float for stealthy fishing. The float is very durable and will withstand rougher use. Has hi-vis top but you better have 20/20 vision if you expect to see this float when making long drifts.
