I didn’t do any angling in the Faroe Islands but, as I often say, I’m passionate not obsessed. Therefore, I don’t crave fishing when I’m not doing it.
However, it was nice to be back on the bank this morning. With another football game to go to, therefore having limited time, I went brook fishing for three-spined sticklebacks.
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 white maggot.
