  • pole elastic for canals

    hi,ive never fished canals with a pole before,whats the norm size elastics for canals,with bream to 6lb,roach to 1lb,carp to 30lb

    I usually use no3 solid for roach etc or no6 solid for slabs, if I hook a 30lb carp I lose it.

      you could always try just putting a 8 laccy in and having it loose slightly out the end it wont be any good for a 30lber but if you get a lump of bream or a 5lb carp or so you got a chance

        well, for starters there isn't going to be one elastic that will cover all of those!

        I use:
        2 for squatt / punch / joker up the shelf
        3 for squatt / punch / joker down the shelf
        4 for caggy and hemp, or maggot down the track
        6 - 12 for choppy depending on likely target fish. Usually doubled 6 or single 8 for chub and bream. Step it up to a short length of 10 or 12 if fishing up to a snagpit.

          Im with nick on this one.
          An 8 will handle anything that you have there.
          Maybe double the elastic up nearer the knot to the 2nd section incase you hook into a nice fish
