The float fisherman uses a running float for casting and general handiness, and stops the float from running up the line by using the Float Stop.
It has the advantage that the stops moves readily over the rod guides, but grips the monofilament nylon so tightly that it will not slide over the line.
It should be made with about 12.5cm of nylon, usually the same diameter as the line itself.
Take 2 turns (3 if necessary) around the main line at the chosen point.
Bring both ends around to form a Surgeon's Knot.
Tighten into shape bringing the coils close together.
