I Fancied Fishing For Three-Spined Sticklebacks, So I Did

I’m working from home today, so that gives me more flexibility. When I went to bed last night, my angling mind was being drawn to sticklebacks.

This morning, after a couple of hours or so on the laptop, I set off for a small brook where there is a healthy head of the species.

That’s the thing with being a solo angler, you can please yourself. You can go when you want, stay as long as you choose and fish where you decide.

I caught ten three-spined sticklebacks on this session and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I’ve done a number of blog entries on the species in recent weeks and you can check them out HERE

In fact, you can access past blogs on any subject by simply typing relevant words into the search engine below. It’s a great facility, I even use it myself on a regular basis.

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 Kamasan 982 size 18. Bait was a single white maggot.
