Thoughts on the weather and fishing, this morning’s angling session and a visit to the tackle shop to stock up for the next outing

That was the case for me this morning, with heavy rain and strong gusts in the local area.

I still went out though.

I had a couple of hours first thing on a small pool, fishing with a waggler.

Bait was two maggots on a size 14 hook and I was flicking the float less than one rod length from the bank.

I enjoy fishing margins and it’s something I’ve done a lot of in the last year or so.

You need to be quiet, keep low and blend in with the background.
