I fish for pikevon my local canal and like most canals there is limited back cast and apart from casting parallel to the canal the only option is to roll cast. Is it possible to put a haul into a roll cast to increase distance?
I am doing a rebuild/ mod on a very light bait casting rod. The tip is just 1mm. I am using single leg rings raging from 2mm to 6mm. I am struggling to get the eyes in line as the eye keeps rolling round the blank. I am using a thin piece of masking tape to hold the ring in place.

I have tried to miniaturise the design on a size 10 hook. A sort of Dawsons Buford.
Another play with the Hends body quill. this time on a nymph. Coq de Leon fibres for the tail. quill body coated in Solarez uv resin. Thorax squirrel and thorax cover is peasant tail fibres coated with resin.
I have some Partridge Absolute predator hooks size 6/0. Now these are huge hooks. I first saw Jo Stephenson use these at the Flyfest at Reghead back in I think 2016. She tied a fly she called the Pike Tamer. This is my variation and incorporating Nayat techniques at the head as per Paul...
