.... do any of you use these rods for small ponds?

Do the rods roll cast? I assume they would. A lot of ponds/rivers I frequent I couldn't think about throwing even this little bit of line as one would a "normal" fly rod, ie, with a backcast.

Have any of you fished from kayak/canoe with these rods? Talk about stealth!!

Hmmm ... I can see a whole new way of fishing evolving for me. No trout streams here in Florida but TONS of bluegill, crappie, small bass, etc, etc.
