The mesh size is 3mm. I store the casters in airtight sandwich bags of about half a pint. Before a roach session, I drop the bait into a jug of cold water and skim off the floaters. Floaters then get mixed in my groundbait for the session.
Trouble is, the fish just don't read the books......

That's a fat tinca Tim, you kept that one quietTroydog wrote: ↑Sat Aug 05, 2023 10:18 am I have used the kit attached for some twenty years. I usually buy two pints of maggots these days and I tip them onto the mesh when I get home. Any dead maggots are saved for ground bait. The others are put in the fridge if I want to keep them as maggots. if I want casters I leave them out of the fridge and the sieve them every day or so to collect the casters. Simple, clean and effective.
