    Catching Sticklebacks

    Whilst fishing the canal today I caught a stickleback
    I haven’t seen one of them for years. I quickly put it back
    Then I caught another and then another from the shoal
    And soon catching sticklebacks became my only goal

    I whipped out nearly forty in twenty minutes flat
    I got pins and needles in me foot as on me box I sat
    I hardly moved for ages and me backside it went numb
    And then I got a stickleback embedded in me thumb

    As I sat I reminisced about the days I was a lad
    Sitting by the cut with me uncle and me dad
    They was catching roach and perch and skimmers down the track
    But all that I could muster was a single stickleback

    So let’s hear it for this tiny fish, this indomitably spiny fish
    For, though specimen proportions he may lack,
    In the winter, when it’s bites you lack, and constantly your line is slack
    You may grateful for that little stickleback.

          brings back childhood memories for me, standing below the weir with my little net and a jam jar, got my first pike there, must have been all of four inches! really shouldn't have put it in the jar with the minnows....

            Why thank you sir. Unfortunately, I don't have the cheeky dimpled smile or the quirky west country aaaaaaaaaccent! I have always liked the pamster, lol
