Been keiryu fishing for the last couple of years and love it. From big rivers, to small ponds, to tiny headwater creeks, it is really a fun way to fish. I mostly use red wigglers that I raise in a Les A. inspired worm ranch. They are great for bass and bluegill in the low country and trout in the high country. An issue I sometimes have is, while the worms are in good shape when I fill my bait box from the worm ranch, they are about twice as long and very skinny by the time I get to use them on the water. Often so skinny I have problems getting them on the hook (usually a Gamakatsu R 10 B, size 12, which is a pretty light hook). I use soil from the worm ranch in the bait box, and often keep the box and worms in the fridge or a cooler until I use them. Anybody else having these problems?

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
