Although worms for fishing (or emergency rations) may be easily located under decomposing leaf mulch in many parts of the country, different terrain may call for another technique, i.e. "The Worm Stick." In fact they are two sticks of equal length, best made of old broom handles, stick # 1 is spiked at one end and every 2 inches a ring is carved around the stick, so that one ends up with at least five or more rings. This stick is jammed in the ground so that the spike makes good contact with the soil. The second stick is run or "rattled" up and down the second, creating a vibrating or whirling noise..this vibration penetrates the ground and if there are worms in your immediate vicinity, they will squirm to the surface and may be collected for your fishing (or eating) pleasure.
Perhaps the frequency of the vibration is irritating to their nervous systems or is reminiscent of raindrops and a heavy (choking) thunderstorm, I do not know. Yet it works nicely. Submitted for your approval..M.L.
