A disappointing angling visit to my favourite brook

It’s been a while since I went stickleback fishing on a particular brook, so this morning that’s exactly where I headed.

We’ve had some extremely heavy rain in recent weeks and the effects of that didn’t look good.

Although it’s very shallow anyway, there were deeper holes where the banks were undercut.

That’s where the big sticklebacks that I’ve been catching were to be found.
