Re: changes to tackle directory n tamban hook

Not using livebait in reservoirs, but just like to know if mealworms can be a good bait for freshwater fishing ( although it dies quickly).. :cool:

Anybody tried this as bait before?

Re: Serious and probable matter, Fish Hook Injury!!

Fishing hooks are deadly to fishes and can be equally as deadly to people if mishandled. Discarded hooks on the ground can sometimes penetrate through slippers and discarded and entangled line can trip passerby.

Unwanted and rusty hooks abandoned on the ground, awaiting barefooted people to trample onto. 2. Anglers tying m...
