Hi all,
Anyone know the state of maggot availability now the commercials have reopened?? Mainly commercials in North Yorkshire area.. Sessay, Forest Lane, Woodlands, etc?
just wondering if its best to order online beforehand?? For those who have been to any of these and surrounding venues this week, are they really busy??
was thinking going next week sometime...
Any advice appreciated??

GT :)

Don’t know about your area, but the fisheries in North West that normally stock still have them. I’ve just got 10 pints today for my bait fridge.. think the farms have carried on, keeping in mind they’re used for feed for farms etc anyway so always a demand

Shops in the East Midlands do have maggots in stock although my local maggot farm at Hucknall is struggling to keep up with the sudden demand again after not selling bait for nearly 2 months.
Mill tackle and Nathan's and Matchman supplies are doing a click and collect bait service.

Mitre Angling Centre, Shipton Road, York, taking telephone orders for maggots etc. Social Distancing in operation, pay at the door with card on collection. Really lovely young couple own it, who are ever so knowledgeable and friendly. Got mine ordered for next week, thought I’d leave it til the commotion dies down a bit.

They had maggot today at Sessay apparently there were only about 50 on yesterday and I should say not much more today, cedar had the most pegs taken with pegs 38 to 50 having anglers every 3 to 4 pegs.
Woodlands was apparently very busy yesterday
