Welcome to Advnture, the new home of AnglersMail.co.uk (opens in new tab)

Drennan's classic Float Fish Line has just got better – it’s now as much as 8 oz stronger per breaking strain, using a reliable knot like a five turn grinner.

What else can we tell you about it? It’s a reel line that’s perfect for float fishing, not super limp where it might tangle. It’s designed to give you perfect float control and line pick-up.

It’ll float straight after casting if left unchecked but flick the rod tip and it’ll sink, just under the surface where you might want it, still offering good line pick-up.

It’ll handle pinched-on shot too, as it’s got pretty good abrasion resistance. Drennan know how to make a good line, they perfected the art years ago.

Available in olive green, you’ll find it in diameters from 2.6 lb (0.14 mm) up to a 6 lb, (0.22 mm) on 100 m spools.

Running from 1964 until 2020, Angler's Mail was the UK's leading weekly magazine devoted to coarse fishing, telling readers everything they needed to know about which fish to catch, where to catch them, and what kit they needed to do it. Now, loads of the magazine's expert advice can be found on Advnture.com, as a helpful resource for angling newcomers and experts alike.
