MAG­GOTS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

There isn’t a roach alive that won’t eat mag­gots. Try us­ing a sin­gle grub for small roach, step­ping up to two or three for big­ger fish. Reg­u­lar feed­ing is key to build­ing up a good catch – a dozen mag­gots every 30 sec­onds is a good start­ing point.

I clean mine in fresh maize flour and boost them with a few drops of pineap­ple flavour the night be­fore fish­ing.

To sort out a big­ger stamp of roach, try us­ing red mag­gots or a bunch of dead mag­gots hard on the bot­tom. Be­ing less vis­i­ble, these baits will be less likely to be picked off by small fish, which feed mainly by sight.
