  1. nice idea… best Ive found so far. Im thinking of a way I could use aluminium mesh to roll up into a cylinder and just attach that both sides to the swimming pool hose. the fluid would drip down easy and maggots would find their way to the exits easily. but how would the flies get in though….

  2. + mark durrant I say old boy one actually enjoys this commoners verbal utterings, makes one realise how lucky one was to have had a private education which puts one in a very privileged position. If I ever take up (I very much doubt it) this crude form of angling I would probably purchase a commercial maggot farm to add to my dairy and arable farms. By the way mark durrant are you related to the durrants of Belgravia?

  3. I made one just like this, but I added a garden hose inlet at the top of the barrel and a tap at the bottom, after a while fill up with water open the tap over a drain and let it flush through

  4. Next time please just don't talk. Submit a script to the internet and have people proof-read it for you for free. Then just copy/paste their words onto the screen. Please. Listening to you talk was seriously traumatizing. You also could have made a shorter video and been more direct with your instructions. Just wow.

  5. Fine instructions, love the accent. Do you have a follow up video with the container in action and crawling with maggots?

  6. I loved this. It also gives me something to do with the 15 shop vacuums laying around my property that do not work. Thanks man. Rick Green out…

  7. I made one without that big ass blue barrel and used that shitty style of hose and it is a pain to clean out. The hay will clog up the hose and you spend more time than needed. I will be making another one without the holes in the bottom and the mesh. The maggots will wiggle through the mesh as they do with a sifter I use to separate them from the flour. I will use a solid hose and it will not come out at the very top as they is more work the maggots have to do to get out. My hose will come out halfway up the bucket into a black container as they do not like light. I will say I like the plastic bottle on top, it’ll help keep the flys in, I used a piece of wire mesh and it did okay.

  8. I just took an old beat up cooler added water hay wood and some meat/veg and just use a shovel when i want to feed some to my chickens and pig and just keep adding more stuff when needed
