Centerpin fishing, also called float fishing or center pin fishing, is a fishing technique which uses a noodle or mooching rod, a centerpin reel and Roe or an artificial fly. The method is used behind boats for steelhead fishing in salt water, and is currently popular with freshwater salmon anglers who drift floats downstream. Directional floats can also be used. These can be planed left and right and flip direction when given a little tug by flicking the rod tip.
