Dig­ging for Lug­worms

VIZ - - News -

ANGLING is Bri­tain’s most pop­u­lar sport, and the coun­try’s es­ti­mated 6 mil­lion fish­er­men pro­vide an in­sa­tiable de­mand for bait. To ex­ploit this op­por­tu­nity, on his way to work ev­ery morn­ing in his £12 mil­lion Fer­rari 250GT Cal­i­for­nia Spi­der – for­merly the prop­erty of movie star James Coburn – Evans stops off for an hour at Higham Bight Muck­ing Flats on the Thames Es­tu­ary to dig for lug­worms. Dawn is the best time to catch lug­worms, and on a good morn­ing, us­ing a special tech­nique in­volv­ing wash­ing-up liq­uid and salt, the Top Gear fail­ure can col­lect up to three pints of them, which he then sells to a nearby angling shop for £2.50 a pint.
