Default Balanceing Trick for Floats, especially Small Floats

This is in responce to problem jdschoef has trying to balance one of my small floats.

LEAd Wire Lead Wire Trick
At most Fly Shops, and larger Bait & Tackle shops you will find thin / fine lead wire in Fly Section.
( Its used to make sinking flies )
All you do is.....1 wrap the lead wire around a small pin.
2.....Take pin out.
3.... tread the line tru the lead coil.
4....twist coil on the line.
5....You can move it by loosing it.
6.....MOST IMPORTANTLY you can just snip off small pieces until the float is balanced as you need it.
Its not always important to have just a tiny amount showing above the surface on Still water float fishing.
Float Fishing Fast Flowing water its not as important to balance the float so carefully.
As you some times need to drag your bait along the bottom.
In flowing water fish have to commit to takeing the bait quickly or.....its gone!
