I fancied doing some small brook fishing today and, with sticklebacks on my mind, I targeted a waterway that I have fished recently.
The short session was captured on video, and for those who like the longer ones, hopefully this will hit the spot.
The best fish, which is a cracker, is the one in the lead image above. Especially when you consider the venue that it came from, it’s a monster. A fantastic session, indeed.
I’m seriously considering getting some scales to weigh the mini-species, as there are records waiting to be broken, for sure.
You can comment below and, as always, I look forward to hearing from you. Plus, there are social media buttons on the page, so if you like a particular blog entry, why not share it?
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.
