    I found this page useful. It is a stop knot for slip floats. I have rebelled against the use of floats for a long time. Now they are not as much of a nuisance. Being able to get the bait deep on a floated line is a big advantage. I like the fact that using a stop knot means the line is not required to be statically attached to the float. This will GREATLY reduce the water drag when setting the hook on a floated line.

    Good Luck!!

    you can also use teflon thread tape it holds well and slips through the guides with ease.

    Michael thanks for sharing the tip. When you get time check out the Wild Wolf Site, for the Kat Bobbers. They have clips video on tying slip knots and the best Bobbers on the market.

    Thanks, Mickey. That was a VERY useful site. Those will be awesome rigged up with circle hooks.
