Ahead Of The UEFA Europa League Draw, Brook Fishing For Sticklebacks

With a busy few hours ahead, courtesy of the first qualifying round draw in the UEFA Europa League, I was out early morning to do some fishing.

I was on a brook that eventually, courtesy of several mergers, makes its way into the Bristol Channel.

At the point I fished though, the expanse of the ocean is a different world. You can follow the session via the video 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 white maggot.
