Q: What advantages does Ecogear Aqua have over Marukyu Isome worms?
RYAN DRURY, HAILSHAM, EAST SUSSEX
AK & DS say: Reportedly, it’s the same material suspended in the same fluid. What we’re really buying is different shapes and, in some cases, a broader range of colours. That can be useful under some circumstances.
I remember using a bright pink Ecogear Aqua worm imitation to good effect in a species competition that was hounded by high winds and poor water clarity. The bright colour increased bites in rough conditions, as the lure stood out better. The broader range of shapes allow you to better match the hatch. The Shirasu model is an excellent fish fry or shrimp replica.
