The run of angling blanks comes to an end with thousands of fish queuing up to be caught!

What about this time though?

I went with a small leger (1/8 ounce) and a single maggot on a size 18 hook.

I fished a deeper bit than the rest of the brook (3 feet compared to 1.5), cast out over a few small balls of brown crumb and maggots and waited.

And waited.

Surely not another blank?

Well, no, but it wasn’t the brook that came to the rescue.
