flood +‎ -let

floodlet (plural floodlets)

  1. A small flood.
    • 1937, Alexander Wanless, Rods on Fast Rivers: An Angling Survey, page 83:
      This flood, or rather floodlet, was a veritable godsend, because it cleaned the river bed of the accumulated dirt of months and washed away great quantities of insect life which make the trout decline the angler's lure.
