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.
Surely not another blank?
Well, no, but it wasn’t the brook that came to the rescue.
