Tackle Guru – Mick Wilkinson Signature Range Pole Floats

Designed and manufactured in the UK in conjunction with Mick Wilkinson.

What are they?

Mick Wilkinson Signature Range Pole Float 1

A brand new hand-made float range from Tackle Guru. Manufactured in-house to the specifications of famous float builder, Mick Wilkinson. All full Mick Wilkinson spec floats, using his extra reliable materials, machines and unique float building processes. This has been a VERY long and difficult task, and we’re incredibly proud as a company to be producing them in house, providing jobs and employment for many local people, with plans to grow as the range does.

 Unique Specifications…

Mick Wilkinson is one of, if not the most renowned hand-made float maker ever! He has over 20 years of experience, and was the first to use high density foam to make floats. The floats are made from the very best quality materials, and have always been designed in conjunction with the UK’s highest level inspirational anglers. They are renowned for being super durable, and for years have been in high demand at a premium price thanks to their reputation – one reason we’re super keen to keep Mick himself involved as much as possible. Each part of the float is incredibly well-thought, from the stem materials and measurements, to the bristle colours and paints.

We have developed a bespoke colour for Guru range of floats, designed from scratch. This is a heron-grey colour, helping the floats remain discrete and inoffensive when in water. They all look attractive and consistent on the shelf too.

We will be taking over his day-to-day business, and he will be concentrating on new patterns, writing programs for the machines and developing patterns for floats in Europe – a big part of our future growth of this project. Mick will continue supplying his bespoke patterns to the public, but his established patterns will be available from Tackle Guru only.

Diamond

A renowned pattern that was originally designed between Mick Wilkinson and Steve Ringer. A long and stable float, developed for fishing baits such as meat, corn and pellets, when stable presentation is needed – the ultimate float for fishing short.

The diamond features a long, stable fiberglass stem, suitable in all conditions, that is super durable. This runs right up through the high-grade foam float body and into the bristle, making the float virtually indestructible. The body shape is where the name comes from, a diamond. This offers a balance of stability, sensitivity and low resistance. The bristle is hollow plastic, and highly visible, cut and painted in house from scratch. Perfect for supporting large baits. The side eye is glued by hand, deep into the body, for upmost strength!

1.8mm hollow plastic bristle
0.9mm fiberglass stem
0.2g, 0.3g, 0.4g, 0.5g, 0.6g, 0.75g, 1g

Pinger Wire

A super popular Mick Wilkinson design, that is truly all-round for commercial fishing. As the name suggest, it’s perfect for pinging pellets, but equally at home for all kinds of baits when targeting carp, F1s and commercial silvers.

Mick Wilkinson Signature Range Pole Float 15

The balance of visibility, strength, and stability is perfect. The wire stem suits this float to choppy conditions, with the rounded body shape offering stability in tow. The medium 1.5mm hollow plastic bristle is highly visible, thick enough to support large baits, but also sensitive enough to detect shy bites from big wary fish.

The ultimate commercial all-rounder, made from Wilky’s renowned high-grade foam. The wire stem runs all the way through the body into the bristle, making the float virtually indestructible! Again, a hand-glued extra-long side eye is unbelievably strong!

Pinger Carbon

A super popular Mick Wilkinson design, that is truly all-round for commercial fishing, identical to the Pinger Wire, but with a carbon stem. As the name suggest, it’s perfect for pinging pellets, but equally at home for all kinds of baits when targeting carp, F1s and commercial silvers.

The carbon stem makes the float very difficult to tangle, and is extra robust! Ideal for fishing through the water and on the drop, helping anglers get perfect presentation! The rounded body shape offers stability in tow and choppy conditions. The medium 1.5mm hollow plastic bristle is highly visible, thick enough to support large baits, but also sensitive enough to detect shy bites from big wary fish.

The ultimate commercial all-rounder, made from Wilky’s renowned high-grade foam. The carbon stem runs all the way through the body into the bristle, making the float virtually indestructible! Again, a hand-glued extra-long side eye is unbelievably strong!
