How much are you paying for a pint of maggots where you are, geographically ?

And how much for a pint of beer ??

Just curious, as just got stung for 4.40 for a pint of maggots while beer is still about 2.50 - 2.70 at the mo. Used to be, when I was younger, that maggots were slightly cheaper than beer. Is this still generally the case or has the world changed, and / or am I just getting ripped off by my bait supplier ?

I suspect the latter, especially as my last pint of crawlers came up light at only 16 fluid ounces when checked at home....

The trouble is that it is the local chap who does it as a hobby / sideline from home and the only alternative is to spend a fiver or more in petrol there and back to the nearest tackle shop.... bit over a barrel like !

Mind you, not that us Welsh chappies are mean in any way.....

Cant comment on the price of beer.

2.20 for both.

Evan just think of all those little purchases you miss out on. Not going to the shop.

My wife and I have just had a weeks holiday in the Lake District. The cost of a pint of boddys and a half of stella was 3.85 and every pub except one was the same. We called in a pub in Penrith and the same order was 2.10. How do they arrive at these pricing structures?.

Coudnt say about the maggotts as i never saw a tackle shop.
