On having a take the float will dip to the side and much of the line is held off the surface.
I think someone else (Mark?) described this on another thread with a diagram.

I know Mark does exactly this with quill but it is not that high above the water. I thought that a long bodied waggler would lift more line of the surface and be more sensitive.

That's it but Mark's setup has most of the float underwater whereas I want most of it above the water so it flicks like a pendulum when a fish takes.

I think you you can still basically do that with the set up Mark describes by just using only enough shot to just cock a much longer float.
I used Mark's set -up on a day when I didn't need to cast a long distance and the water was fairly calm, so I just put enough shot to add a bit of weight to the float - to enable me to cast the distance I needed. The float was almost flat on the surface but I still only had to watch the red tip to see a bite rather than concentrating and straining to see if the carp was taking the bait.

Mark wrote:I use Bakers Meaty Meal dog biscuits. There is no need to soak them they can be placed straight onto the hook as they are soft, two of these on a No. 6 work a treat and will cast as far as I need them to without coming off the hook.

do you mean these ones mark and if so beef or chicken

They also last for ages if you don't use them I just keep them in air tight containers
