Anyone selling blackheads
Please send me a pm
Go out and get them , if you want the proper black heads then go out at night with a torch (Red Filter) and look at the edges of
paths and kirb edges that have grass or soil up to the edge. Black heads love to lie under concrete edges and come out of cracks in the tarmac or joints in the concrete edging at night if moist enough. On a moist or wet night i would normally get enough for a full days fishing in around the hour. Been years since i fished the worm mind you.
Bloody hard to get and over rated imo. I worm when the water is dirty so a black head just doesn't cut it. Dull and lifeless
Instead I use large canadian lobs and a few roughed dendras at the bottom to avoid them slipping past shank. The lobs are bigger and the dendras are brighter. Works very well for me. Always a good stock in shops or online.
The only advantage I think blackheads have is they hold the hook very well, but so will dendras if roughed in good bedding
I put them in the moss and put a little sand over the moss that fairly toughens them up. If you know a farmer with cows ask permission to go into his field take a garden fork with you and lift the cow pats dig just underneath and you will get the liveliest black heads you could imagine.
REMBER to tramp the spoil back in the hole to stay on his good books
