          Just soak your hands in diluted bleach,soon gets rid of it.When I worked in tackle shop you where afraid to pick anything up in the bait room everything was coated in the bloody stuff.If they are done right you shouldnt get it on you.

              DOnt know why they seem better, perhaps just because they look like a caster?

              I used them last week on the aire and calder canal and they are definately the best on there - but everyone uses them and thats what the fish are used too so I suppose that has alot to do with it.

                Bronze maggots are without doubt the best colour on the local canals for roach fishing but as to what a bronze maggot looks like to a fish in 8-10ft of water is anybodies guess. I think red light disappears at the shallowest depth?

                They were undoubtedly the best on the trent but my mother banned me from using them after I came back from one match with the stuff all over my hands and face. I suppose a lot depends upon whether you want to go out and pull on the saturday night after them match. I dare say that nice ladies don't want bronze maggot hands inside their pants!

                  Bronze is colour I mainly I use and I have loads of sucsess with them,If I am on the river I will always buy whites and give them a good covering in turmeric, the chub In are local go mad for them.I have found that carp will always go for reds over bronze.

                      I use the stuff for some years and have some great results . It works best on a lake for roach and some really big bream . I like bronze fingers more than an empty keepnet !

                        If you use bronze maggots remember not to scratch your nose or wipe your face with your hands as you get perculiar looks in the pub and comments about your fake tan not working properly.

                          If you clean them properly, you can get rid of the problem unless they get wet, when it starts again. Riddle off al the sawdust that they come in. Put them in fresh sawdust and leave for a couple of hours. Riddle that off and put them in clean again overnight. Riddle that off on the morning you are going and put them into maize meal and/or turmeric.

                          You shouldn't have any problems then.

                            Yes the problem we had was, we were fishing in heavy rain/thunder storm. It was difficult to keep anything dry. Took over 2 weeks to get the dye off my finger nails. I will be sticking to whites and reds in future.
                            At the weekends match one of the guys must have been scratching his face during the match and ended up with a bronze/yellow face. I said, you'll be ok if your missus fancies a 'Chinese' tonight.
