THE WORM or WORMS

Post by Stotty on Tue Sep 28, 2010 2:13 am

scientific men have made careful calculations, and claim that an acre of ordinary land suitable for worms contains fifty-three thousand worms!



How to Collect-Worms Easily

The best time to collect worms is at night, when they are above ground, and you need no spade and laborious digging to catch them. If there has been a warm shower, the conditions for a big harvest of worms is perfect. Take a lantern and bucket. If you step softly, and hold your lantern or torch close to the ground, you will see hundreds of worms in the wet grass, in the open footpath and by the roadside, Also because lobworms are light-sensitive, the torch beam cannot be shone directly on a worm for more than a moment or it will be gone. One solution is to point the beam into the grass and to look for your quarry in the periphery of the light it throws. The other is to soften the beamís glare. but thats why a lantern is best. The skill is in spotting a worm, bending down and grabbing it firmly between finger and thumb and simply hanging on tight.

You canít afford to go tugging at the worm or it will break and, contary to folklore, will die. Just apply a steady amount of gentle pressure and wait.Youíll be amazed at how strong a worm is Ė you will feel it pulling back Ė but it will relax and you should be able to draw it out of the ground unharmed.

Different Varieties.

There are many varieties of worms known to the fisherman. We all know that some worms are strong, lusty, dark in color, and will live some time on the hook; while others are weak, flabby, light in color, and soon die on the hook.
varieties as the red-worm of the manure heaps, and the brandling or yellow-worm, ringed with red, of manure-heaps and tan-heaps. The good old Perch fave Lob worm

How to Keep Worms Healthy and Well.

over the years i have now found if i am taking worms out with me i no longer keep them in soil Gather some fresh moss, and cover your worms with it. Put in plenty of moss, and no earth, except that which naturally adheres to the moss. The moss should be moist but not wet. Leave enough space between the top of the moss and the cover to form an air-chamber.
In this box your bait not only will not die, but will grow stronger and better day by day. now there is a top tip i have kept them for ages like this all you have to do is keep the box in some damp, cool place, where it will be sheltered from the rain and sun.
