I do enjoy brook fishing and in this blog entry I visit a tiny waterway for the first time.
Not knowing what to expect, I talk through my approach in tackling these type of venues, via the video below.
As you can see, it was extremely shallow, and for much of it I actually walked the brook itself, with just the soles of my boots getting wet.
Did I catch though? Well, all is revealed below.
The tackle I fished with was as follows: Poachers Pocket mini-rod and reel. Reel line was 4lb Maxima Chameleon, leading to Ultima Virage 1lb 6oz fluorocarbon, joined by a loop-to-loop knot.
I nipped a size 4 shot on the line and the hook was a Drennan Super Specialist micro barbed size 18. Bait was a single red maggot.
