Description

The Sheffield Floats are constructed of crystal clear plastic with your choice of Flo. Chartreuse, Flo. Orange or Flo. Pink hi-vis tops. The clear plastic material makes them nearly invisible in the water and at the same time very durable. These floats have a slot in the bottom section to put the line through, and come with silicone tubing to hold the line in place on the top and bottom of the float.

Flo. Chartreuse
Flo. Orange
Flo. Pink

These floats come two to a package.

These floats are deadly when trout fishing, being that they are clear and thin I believe the fish don't notice them. They drift nice and I buy the 2gram so it doesn't take much of a hit to pull one under, very sensitive to strikes.
Pros: Clear, thin profile, Easy To Use
Cons: they leak on occasion
Best Uses: clear water trout streams
Great product

I use these floats for stream trout fishing. The streams I fish are generally clear and other floats/indicators tend to spook the fish. These clear floats do not.Their shape also offers very little resistance when the fish strike.I've had one or two out of 20 allow some water to leak into the float after use, other than that I would have given 5 stars.

These are great for the low and clear water situations while float fishing. These things float great. The only downside to these is that they break pretty easily. I personally would recommend balsa floats for all other water conditions as they are much harder to break.

Cons: Easy to Break, Poor Construction

I first used these floats on a drift boat at the Salmon River while drifting for Steelhead, I liked them so much I bought some when I got home. They are well made & cast easily. I find the orange ones a little easier to see. I use these now for trout fishing on small streams, drifting flies, small minnows or eggs on spinning gear.

I use the two smaller sizes of these floats for steelhead fishing with sucker spawn flies using my spinning rod. Properly weighed they are easy to see while appearing invisable to the fish. I use both colors depending upon the time of day and the amount of light. No negatives.

Clarksburg, W.V.
About Me:
Avid Fisher
Rigging requires the line through a tubing washer on the top and the line threaded through a hole in the float at the bottom. Takes a few minutes but worth the effort. I hate to loose these floats if my line breaks on a snag. Light enough to show strike if matched right to line weights. Makes a great "ploop" when a trout strikes and fish on!
Pros: Easy To Store, Easy To Handle, Casts Well, Light weight, Great strike indicator
Cons: Breaks on impact, Loose on line breaking, Extra time to rig
Best Uses: Driftfloat fishing

I use primarily #7.0, 2- 3/0 split shot below the float, then a barrel swivel. Below that is my flurocarbon leader and hook. I use 3 BB split shot on the leader. This is an incredible set up. This works in all applications of Ohio, Pennsylvania, as well as New York streams. I can't say enough about these floats. I prefer them over the Drenans.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Good Value
Cons: Cracks when hit on rocks
Best Uses: Well balanced float
