I like that Mark, interestingly a lot of top anglers only start shotting sticks from 1/3 down to the hook, not all the way. Whats your thoughts on that buddy?

There are lots of variables including flow, depth, whether steady or boily, the target species, temperature, how the fish are feeding etc. In deeper water over 8 foot then yes it's more likely that the shot need to be in the bottom third/half of the rig. I tend to fish relatively shallow waters with a stick and use Avons etc. in deeper water.
