I Enjoy Fishing For The Mini-Species – Saturday Stickleback Stalking

This blog entry is predominantly video-led and you can watch how the session went 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 2lb 8oz fluorocarbon, joined by a loop-to-loop knot.

I usually go for 1lb 6oz Virage but as the line was already set up from a previous session, I kept that. On this venue it doesn’t make any real difference.

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.
