WORMS For Angling. The brandling, gilt-tail, and red-worm, are all to be found in dunghills, or in the adjoining rotten earth; but the best are to be had in tan-yards. The class-bait, or bott, a little larger than the gentle, is found under cow-dung. The cod-bait, or caddis-worm, or straw-worm,are found in pits, ponds, brooks, ditches, &c. The earth-bob or white grub is twice the size of the maggot, and lives in sandy, light soil; it is readily found in the earth newly turned up by the plough. The flag-worm, or dock-worm, assemble round the roots of naggers that grow on the brink of a neglected pond. The lob-worm, or dew-worm, or garden-worm, or twatchel, which are only different names for the same bait, is found in church-yards and other rich soils by the help of a lantern late on a summer's evening. The blue marshworm is found in marshy places; and the tag-tail in marled land.
