Acorn Floats

Owner's Acorn Floats can be used for keiryu fishing in place of yarn markers.  You could use them anywhere you would use a yarn indicator or thingamabobber (or just plain ol' bobber). The stem and tubing makes them very easy to adjust - just thread your line through the tubing and then insert the stem into the tubing to hold the line in place. The fluorescent orange top makes them quite visible.

Constructed of balsa wood, they are naturally buoyant and never require any floatant or treatment. They will easily support a tungsten beadhead nymph or a Dinsmore BB shot - or both, for that matter. (Some weight is needed to get them to float properly.)

They are two inches from top to tip and a half inch wide. They're a bit big for micros (the Micro Fishing Floats are better for that) but they'd be just right for trout or panfish.
