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. 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.

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.

Simply the best float

by mangledfly -

The float that is simply the best for low clear water here in the midwest. It's a staple on my float rods all year long, until water gets big a dirty and I need to go heavier.

Best float for catching fish

by petch -

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.

Drennan loafer float

by CarpCrazy -

Well believe it or not I use these floats for carp fishing. sensitive enough so the fish does not feel anything, and probably almost invisible to the carps ! Great product.

Best floats

by Josh -

Most durable plastic float I have used. does not break if you accidently hit a rock and you can detect even the lightest bite on the finicky Brown and rainbow trout in the great lakes.

The best steelhead float.

by Bob Sterlin -

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.

Best for centerpinning

by Lou -

Hands down, best centerpin float for steelhead. Small enough to not spook fish and floats true.

Awesome steelhead floats

by WPA1977

My favorite float for the Erie tribs. I prefer the #3 size most of the time.

Drennan Loafer Float Review

by Will D. -

I tested this float on my home-water "The Skykomish River". The weather conditions were sunny, and the water was clear for winter. I own many Drennan floats and previously adopted the "Piker" as my all-around favorite. Until, I tried these "Loafer" floats. They are even more sensitive while drifting within the current! They prevail over any other float in lower and clearer water. This summer when I drop down to split-shot instead of in-line weighs with 1/32 oz. jigheads this float will shine. Less of a shadow producing profile, and perfectly clear makes this jig my new favorite.

worth the money

by steeliehunter -

they work very well. you can detect light hits, and they are clear so fish aren't spooked. pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Stealth Float!

by Wolfkorbel -

This float is perfect for those quiet runs where you want the float to be invisible. Delicate, and quiet while landing, this is the perfect stealth float for trout, and other "spooky" fish!

Top of the line for trout

Drennan floats are the best and easiest to use. Stable and upright in the water.

Best floats for steelhead

by Grady Traver -

Great floats, strong, Easy to trot, I usually modify them.

Good Floats!!!


These are some of the best floats i've ever fished. I prefer the loafers for faster water the slim design lets them sit high out of the water. They hold nice amount of weight for size and when they drop its all over. They are expensive but worth the money!!
