Hi mate.

I'd be interested in having a look at that could you let me know how to find it? I've done a search which didn't come up with anything. I'm thinking of giving hermit a go soon and wouldn't mind some frozen to back up any fresh i can get.

Find it a very good bait, when fresh, for all sorts, mainly plaice and cod, where I fish. Those terrible commercial chaps ( see they are not all bad!) have always helped me out with a supply. I have tried it frozen, but as I only tend to use the tails, I find the bait a bit too soft, albeit it is better than nothing

Tried the frozen from Newtown Angling, nice presentation but only had whiting and a conger on them so far, makes a nice big juicy bait when added to peeler!
