Right i have made my mind up a bearking Zuess, what would you recommend for a rod to go with it, small canals like yours. 

Kuying rods are not bad , I used to have a 5ft teton sul 0.8-3gm that I used for trout . You might be better getting the ul version just for a few extra grams casting weight because of pike . The mavellos delicacy gets mentioned a lot on the bfs groups . Tsurinoya elf and dragons are well thought of aswell . If you don’t know about these shops it would be worth having a look at Needhams specialist tackle and nine seven tungsten for rods and if you’re on Facebook message Jon Sykes from Barnsley , he’ll have rods and reels , some new some used of all price ranges but half his stuff wont have been advertised so it’s better to ask him what he’s got . It would be also it will be joining budget bfs fishing aswell

Its  a great way to fish ,travel lite and cover aload of ground,my lads all over it,all he bloody talks about lol,hes had perch,jacks,chub and some decent trout on his own , this season.. He Uses

Soft plastics are all I use for perch and pike on the canals with the bfs gear and in particular the 40mm crazyfish nimbles/supercontinent copies . I used to use it on the rivers for trout aswell but

My lad got out today after the waters had  receded on the local brook...sent me this..

When your reel comes be careful putting line on because the spools are so light it’s easy to crush or warp them and don’t put more than 50m on because you don’t want to add unnecessary weight to the spool . Rawr fishing on YouTube has a vid showing how to load braid on these little bfs reels without using any backing or tape . 
When you’re first starting casting bfs gear it’s different than using ordinary multipliers because they are faster and if you try to cast hard or whip it to get distance like you would with a fixed spool or ordinary multi you’ll blow it up . The trick is to slow everything down and not put much power in to it and just let the gear do the work for you , you’ll get better distance that way . Set the spool tension so there’s hardly any side to side play and set the brakes higher and just back them off till you start casting longer with hardly any backlashes .

Should do alright with that setup , think the mavellos comes with 2 tops , solid and hollow aswell . What lb braid did you get , I’ve not seen that one before . I use the kingdom microfly mx8 4 strand in  pe.02 , 9lb , 0.07mm and it’s spot on . One thing to watch with 8 strand is it’s not as tough as 4 so keep an eye on it for any damage . You’ll only need about 70-75 turns on the spool and that will give you enough for 3 fills from the 150m  . You’d be aswell starting with 3gm+ to begin with till you get the hang of it and not trying the 1gm . This is not a bad video to give you a better idea

The diameter is 0.8, went for 8 strand as that and above is what i use on my feeder setups. it just seams to flow through the rings better, But then again i am casing up to eighty plus yards at times.

Is that pe .08 or .08mm . If it’s the pe rating you might struggle to cast lighter lures very far but if it’s 0.8mm it’s spot on . Braid can be a minefield with the different rating systems like bs , mm , pe and now goh aswell . I still look at diameter and bs

,08 is apparently 5kilo or 11lb should have gone to specsavers Lol

Is it that the kingdom skx8 spiderking one , seems a bit thick for an 8 strand at .14 for 11lb , that cant be right .  My kingdom micro fly 4 strand is only .07 for 9lb

Shouldn’t take that long surely, I’d be surprised if it did 

One thing i will say, Touch wood everything i have ordered has been good unlike the Advanta bait caster i purchased from Angling Direct on recommendation of a staff member, It really is shite, borrowed a mates Shamano set up just to see if it was me, No is was not me, he couldn't use the Advanta one either and he has been at it years.
