The Early Bird Catches The Beach Worm






You can't go past fresh beach worms as fishing bait but catching them is quite a skill. First you need some very rotten fish/meat that you put in a bag and drag over the shore at low tide. The smell brings Australonuphis to the surface. The real trick is to pull them out without them snapping, it must be done with a very fluid and constant pull. The biggest worms can be over a metre long.
