    Re: Weird Hardy Conquest 'Pin

    That is a strange looking Conquest. Never seen one like that before and I’d hazard a guess at it being from an overseas market.

    Re: Keeping maggots in fridge ???

    You really need to keep them cool and to change the maize meal (or chosen medium) a couple of times a week to keep them in best condition.

    Re: Rod endorsements

    I would totally agree on rods that were endorsed by the likes of Allerton, Dean and Pickering. I have a couple of the Diawa Pickering Amorphous riods and they are excellent.

    Re: Keeping maggots in fridge ???

    We used to work on 1,100 degree hours from fresh.
