Does anyone use comal toothpick floats if so are they made from cork or foam?

I use the mini toothpicks as a strike indicator when fly fishing with scuds and nymphs.

They are foam (and break easily).

Yep they are foam.

After researching this float I find that it will meet my needs and will purchase me some. I will use them for bream fishing.

I like the lil Comal 3/4" pear floats for bream. With a 1/32oz head they just barely float. With 1/48 they still have very little resistance.

Went flyfishing this winter for Trout, I bought many so I can use them for Gils and Crappie this year, I think they will work well with light weight jig heads and number 10 and 12 hooks

i use the pencil version in 3 packs with the long shaft and short shaft VERY frequently ....
they are super cheap and when i know i stand to lose lots of floats ....
and have no way to get them back.... aka banking it ....they are the perfect float
i have changed over a bunch of bank anglers over the years from the other types of floats
40 cents maybe each and a 20 cent jig is all you lose if "something" breaks your line ...
they are foam and plastic btw ....

Try using a snap swivel above a mono leader. I use this constantly and never use a float as the breakage in below the snap swivel. Good floats are expensive
