    Looking for short 1 ft net handle

    The ones I have found are stainless steel which I think is heavy? Or carbon which is expensive which I don't mind paying for but would have to cut it and given that a bank stick is for holding stuff up would it handle the lateral force load?

    Help with which rod to buy for loch fishing from the bank

    A slightly longer rod helps keep the line a little bit higher and creat a bigger line loop so in theory you should be able to cast multiple flies that much easier. No reason why your currant rod can't either mind. Tip = slow things down but make sure the tippet 3 flies straightens out on the...
