It’s a piscatorial challenge at the moment, courtesy of the weather

I threw a small number of loose maggots out several times but I didn’t even get a tap.

At least I was able to feed a couple of robins who appeared alongside me.

When the temperature is sub-zero, even a few maggots can make the difference between life and death.

Not to be deterred, I was back out again today for another short session.

This time I was on a stream where I have caught well in the past.
