    Default Prawn/Shrimp or Worm

    Ignoring the fact that Prawn/Shrimp fishing is banned on the majority of rivers - If bait fishing is allowed should it be Worm or Prawn/Shrimp.

    Default Worm all the way.

    Hi darren

    It would be worm as its the most difficult of the three methods,and one thats close to my heart as my wifes grandfather,jackie milligan,a maybole man like our very own longchuck(tam) was an excellent salmon fisherman who stuck to the worm all his days and took many salmon on doon,ayr,and the girvan over many years,i used to watch him fish the worm and its a craft in itself,no doubt about it,god rest his soul,a great worm fisherman well known on the the ayrshire rivers.

    I love fishing the worm but get very frustrated with worm anglers who sit all day in one pool, so for this reason, and the fact that the method is prone to deep hooking I have voted for the Dark Side

    shrimp I think worming should be banned in oct for deep hooking reasons {I know some people strike straightaway but its not guaranteed}ive returned loads off fish on shrimp and never had one die
    A day at work is another day wasted

    Let's ban the real prawn and tie up imitations. Is there really a difference?

    Of course there is, the real shrimp can be presented and fished in a way the flea can't so is more successful, something that irks the flea only brigade.

    I do only fish the flea myself these days, but that's my choice.

    probably the best worm fisher i ever witnessed was jackie.
    saw him take 5 fish in 1 hour from the pipe pool on the doon.
    rods had shrimped it and spun it hard before jackie arrived.
    he didnt like to overload his hook with worms,just a coupe of blackheads.
