Short Floating

Short floating is a common term of a float fishing technique used for salmon, steelhead and trout in streams. The idea is to have your float depth adjusted so it is one or two feet shorter than the actual depth of the river. Because salmonids look up when resting on the river bed, your chance of getting a strike by floating your bait above their head is much bigger.
