That the ones off eBay? Was considering ordering some myself but due to stayin in a flat don’t have anywhere to store them so will need order couple days before I’m going out that’s a great turnaround

I used to order the big bag from there, good worms that get sent in a cardboard box that fits through your letterbox, they used to give you a voucher for 10% off your next order too.
Had a few salmon on them but they're deadly for the sea trout in tidal pools in this low water.
I kept them for weeks at a time in a dark cool cupboard, though if you see any starting to die use them up quick as I found when one died it seemed to kill others and nothing worse than the smell of dead worms.

Came the next day well packaged and good size for sea trout and salmon was very happy with the service only problem was the bbc weather lied and there was hardly any rain so was pointless buying them in the first place so they are safe in my new wormery until I need them

I'm sure their website said they weren't sending any deliveries out till the 29th? Was looking to get some myself

Can you post a pic of your wormery, wondering if I should get one.
Only a wee fat brownie about a pound for my efforts.

I done it years ago was worth it then but had kid and didn't have the time i put about 50 worms in it these will breed I will fatten up and they will make compost to if they breed loads and you have to many give or sell to anglers u know but they self populate so there is enough for the food this is just 1 tray in use i have 4 trays take a year for all to get going

Thanks, i wonder how often and how many you can harvest from it, cant imagine theyd breed fast enough to be worming all the time

Are you all using dendrobenas for your worming ?
I have been using them for about 10years now. Wouldn't use anything else now for sea trout and had any number of salmon too. Only ever use 2 on a size 6 hook and maybe a swanshot and or a AAA shot.
I find them easier to keep for a long time than lobworms.

For salmon worming ,lob worms and brandlings (dendros) are our main baits. If you let the salmon take the bait well down you you will innevitably deep hook it. If however you lift on the second bump, you will lip hook in the mouth

Small lobs would my first choise, however, they are not easily available. Don't buy them, they are invariably dead quickly, whereas big dendrobas travel well and are long lived. If you get small lobs, keep them cool in moss or wet paper, big denbibs in torn wet paper. Keep them cool, they will catch loads .

There is nothing,,,, nothing in our sport like the take of a salmon.
The long draw of a take to the fly .
The jag, Jag of a take to the spinner.
The dip of a float for a shrimp , but
The gentle rub, rub then draw with a salmon taking the worm is special.
Pity it's banned.

I mostly fiah the fly or spinner just the odd occasion I go with the worm the lobs are 20 quid and like you say dead in a day or so so a wormery is a project for the wain to teach her about the process and I can get some worms when I need them i will make them nice a fat for the salmon haha

The ultimate is the “blackhead worm”. A bunch of 3 pulsating through spate water is a killer bait for salmon.

I do miss it since it was banned but it’s for the greater good.
