    Breeding maggots without meat

    Spot on Lofty, that's how I did mine too.. I didn't worry about the smell. kept them jar in of bran in the bottom of the fishing bait fridge. They go into hibernation and last for ages. Did leave them in the fridge in the house once, but somehow the jar got knocked over just after I put them in it. Seeing as I had some air hole in the lid..Well you can guess what happened after that.. That;s why I finished up with a bait fridge & freezer in the shed.. cheers Adrian

    Small Daiwa spin reels Vs Shimano?

    Well here's all my light weight trout reels that I use on my Daiwa Presso ULS 1-3kg rods 6' & 6'6'' & Okuma Celilo ULS 1-3kg 6'6'' & 6' rods. Well balanced set ups, reels all filled with a .18 4lb clear mono line.. Very happy with them.. Daiwa Ageas 2004H also have a MX2004H Gekkabijin reel which is much the same as the Ageas This little Crest reel is set up on a Daiwa presso 5'6'' rod for trout fishing small tight creeks & streams Daiwa Revros 1003 & I also have two 2004H ones. Okuma Ceymar C-10 (small reel) Okuma Helios SX20 cheers Adrian
