float or no float?

by James

I've been using my Suntech Kurenai HM63R for some still water trout lately and have been wondering what floats are best for it. I use the smallest thill floats I can find (a bit over an inch and a half in length) and they work fine but I'm wondering if there are some better floats out there. I enjoy fishing "traditional" seiryu for these little trout but should I even use a float, or just a casting line? Any suggestions are welcome.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
