Hi lads got lost for a few days down to a mechanical breakdown on the site, so have a backlog of questions to ask of you all. How do you manage to put your rag worms on the hook? I can only get them on as far as the eye on the hook and finding great difficulty in pulling them up on the line without pulling them apart!

 

I also find it a great shame not to go fishing in windy weather from the beach I am talking about 24 plus when things are blown about or over, how can you combat this?

 

Once again thanks for all of your help, you really have been a great bunch of guys to talk to.

"How do you manage to put your rag worms on the hook? "

The simplest tricks are often the best!
Get a handful of sand or fine grit and rub the head of the worm or your finger tips in it before threading the head on first. Thread on as much as you can, then pull the head past the eye and continue to thread up the snood to a bait-stop.

This gives you the idea of the baitstop (ignore beads etc unless plaice/flattie fishing) -


"I also find it a great shame not to go fishing in windy weather from the beach ..."

PM me for the copy of my SA article about rough weather fishing, which is in the pipeline.

Another top tip is to buy yourself a bait needle. They don't cost much (1ish) and they look like a thin needle that you can slide the worm onto and then straight onto the hook. Works a treat because the the hookslide throught the middle of the bait so it won't tear when you get to the hook eye.
  
Hope this helps.
