Blackbird by Redwing Tackle Phantom Floats
The Blackbird Phantom Floats are made in Canada by Redwing Tackle and are very popular for trout, steelhead, and salmon fishing. The models with the clear bottoms make them nearly invisible from below in the water. The Blackbird Phantom Floats also work well when fishing for crappie or panfish in clearer/shallower water. The models with the black bottoms add a little more contrast making them easier to see when fishing deeper/darker waters. These floats can easily be used for slip float style fishing, are constructed using 1 solid piece of plastic, and are very durable.
- Includes silicon tubing to hold the line in place on the top and bottom of the float
- Qty. per Pack: 2
Note: The Black floats come with a slit in the bottom section to put the line through. The Clear floats do not.

Blackbird Phantom Floats

Used these floats for steelhead fishing on lake Erie creeks. Need to add a BB split shot below float for optimum balance.
Trout and Salmon beware!
These floats are great for tackling skittish fish. The low profile of the float doesn't scare fish off in shallow waters like traditional round bobbers. They hold more weight than other floats in this category, and seem to be more durable than their less pricey counterparts. The top of the float is easily seen in most situations. These are my go to floats in situations where water depth is less than 4 ft.
