Do you love big bluegill?
That's looking more like it:
Determine the length of the "stem" and insert it into the body:
Pressing a glass bead into the stem. I despise the plastic beads used on most slip floats, as the wear too easily and pinch my line. Also, the glass beads have a smaller hole in their center, which does away with the need for the bead included with the bobber stop:
All that's left is to apply a finish, and weight the float using the washers and an o-ring. I haven't decided on a finish yet, as I'm still experimenting with shape and sizes. So for now, I just go with white, and a brighter color on top for visibility. I intend to airbrush the colors when I'm satisfied with the floats themselves. here's a few I'm currently working with. And they even catch fish!....
