I always take some maggots with me but it's not my first choice of bait, Preferring corn, bread, or worm.

I go to a maggot farm a few miles away and get half a gallon of maggots for £6, sometimes they charge only £5. It's a very good measure. I take one of those buckets about 9in dia and it ends up about 2/3 full.

I have to order mine by post if I really need some. I normally just raid my local super market for baits such as prawns, sweetcorn, cat meat. I'm fishing tomorrow so I've just mixed up some cat biscuit ground bait...it works a treat. It's surprising what baits can be made yourself.

I still wish we had a local tackle shop though, instead of one 30 miles away.

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

£2 up er in the grim north. From a shop supplying match man supplies. Guess it's their bread and butter trade.
I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

The place I'm forced to use is also geared towards our friends the match men as well as the bivvy boys. I guess he realises he's the only tackle shop for miles so can charge what he likes. :rant:
