It was a lot harder with my £200 loch tamers than it was with my v old rough and ready pikemasters. Extended bank stick works just as well.

When your line is tight to the float, it's great to see that baitrunner going.

I’ve got one of those thought it would be lighter than carrying a bankstick never had the confidence to use it not that I’ve actually tested it.

I never leave my baits long so sticking the butt into my chest keeps the tip 13-14ft up.

Had a dawn 'til 3 day yest. and found all the fish were under my feet!

:grin:
