Bloodwormers want compo

Bloodwormers want compo ... http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2018-0 ... an/9710174

They look different from the bloodworms we used in Adelaide, SA, for bream, they were red and had a good set of teeth. Bream loved them. The smelly tubeworms were the other option, and I had good luck on whiting getting what looked like earthworms out of the rafts of rotting seaweed.

When I was a kid we caught big bream on any old tackle near the Birkenhead Tavern and at Snowdowns Beach, but later on the bream seemed more picky, especially in Westlakes.

I read an interresting article recently about blood worms. Unlike humans who have A, B or O [or various variants] blood worms have neither, so experiments are being conducted submerging organs in bloodworm blood for several hours, thus preventing rejection when transplanting into non matching blood type. Early experiments apparently very promissing. Kai.
