After I'd been spinning on my new lake which is now the older lake a work mate took me to an old quarry which is full of water and very deep and according to him stuffed with Brownies fish

And Another New Pond  20190918

Despite trying numerous types of spinner we both blanked  Violin

Wonder if the fish can sense the change in the weather and it puts them off their feed, it's been a lovely day but the rain is on it's way  
Rain

It's a good excuse anyway  lol!
Will definitely be trying this spot again bye

I think the fall in the air pressure effects the feeding.Apparently,after a couple of days of low pressure they sort of acclimatise to it,and come back on the feed.
Brownies don't have much caution,they grab at anything.
You could try a jigged sprat instead of a lure or spinner.
They grow bigger where they can eat smaller fish.
I usually find that if there are only small brownies in a stream,it's because there are no minnows.
I use an 8 or 10 size hook,no point in using a small hook..
A few free offerings will start them feeding usually.
Keep us posted. lol!

I used to fish a small reservoir near Cilcain, sometimes spinner, but more usually the smallish pink worms under a float set at about 6ft, no bites until the worm drifted in and touched the bottom.
Also used to use maggots under a float, chuck a few in, then cast. You can sometimes get a workup going
Same idea ground baiting a few maggots then flyfish a maggot on a small hook with a slow action making sure the trace straightens or you flick the maggot off.
