    Large brandlings (stripped bodies) from the compost bin can work well, and are a safe bet, but those black headed lobworms from your veg patch are perhaps the best. I find those all red worms a bit soft, but somebody else on here is going to say they are brilliant!

    Agree with Aled the red ones do tend to go a bit soft but the blue heads are the better ones

    Not that I do much now, but I agree the blue headed worms you'd find in the veg patch or on the periphery of the compost heap are the best. Under cow pats are a dead cert. About 5 to 6 inches long, toughen them up by storing in a mixture of damp news paper, moss and sand..... I used to keep a store of 200 most seasons when I fished the Welsh Dee more, great for seatrout, I've never done any good on brandlings...

    I've caught on brandlings Andy & Terry, but I too think Black Heads are the best.
