Fishing is ultimately about enjoyment and that’s why I’ve been for three sessions on the bounce in pursuit of three-spined sticklebacks.
I do enjoy brooks and the smaller the better. Ever since I’ve been a child I’ve had a fascination with the more intimate venues.
The brook I’ve been on of late is nothing more than a tiny trickle. I’m fishing very close to its source, as it enters the world above via a spring.
Then, joined by several other similar waterways, it becomes the place that you can see in the video.
The stickleback fishing is quite good, although access to the water is a challenge.
There are no swims, as such, you just make your way through the undergrowth and set up the best that you can in the tight spot.
