Why fish using a bankstick?
The bankstick is the simplest, most cost-efficient rod rest there is.
The main advantage is that it's compact, perfect for short sessions with one or two rods. Should your set include different sizes, you can use it in a number of situations.
The limits of banksticks become clear on hard banks, whereas a rod pod can be installed on any type of ground and can angle rods into a number of different positions.
Correctly positioning your rods.
Using banksticks allows you to align your rod with your line to better detect bites. Obviously, rod pods make it difficult to have each rod aligned with its line.
In addition, depending on the fishing spot, it's important to choose the right rod orientation: low, horizontal, or high. By separating your rods with two-rod buzz bars, you can easily adapt the orientation to the fishing spot.
Rod positioning: high or low tip? (1)
Horizontal position: this is your rod's natural position. It is suited to most middle-distance fishing conditions in closed waters that are free of obstacles.
Low position or immersed tip: the advantage of this position is that it makes your line less visible on the bottom. Use this position when fishing in water with clean beds. This position also prevents your line from moving in strong wind.
Rod positioning: high or low tip? (2)
High position: if there are obstacles between your position and the fishing spot, you need to keep your line well clear of them. Do this by pointing your rod skywards. In very long-distance fishing, such as on a lake, contact with the rig is better and any unseen obstacles can be avoided.
Use the high position for river fishing, so that your line is not exposed to the force of the current that will displace your rig.
