I fish a local water which is stuffed with silvers on top of the bream when the are feeding.

i would like to target the silver in the quite hours as could put a extra 20 pound in the net Using the whip but found changing the maggot to often is wasting time.

on a recent match i used a 4mm varnished pellet on a lasso and with a guru kaizen hook, whilst it was very quick I found that I bumped a lot.

when whip fishing with maggots in the past I use a long shank turbertini series 2 which are fantastic and hardly bump a fish but these only seem to come in spade end And struggle to use with a lasso.

is there any long shank eyed hooks worth looking at which I can use with the lasso.

thanks

Tried the fake maggot trick but getting pestered by the tiny ones, finding when using a 4mm I get the 4 - 6 oz plus stamp which are great weight builders.
