I have to say that this is the best bait holder I have ever seen or come across to date. I love fishing and try to go as often as I can, in the summer and the winter. I was born with a fishing rod in my hand. I was a tomboy if you will and worms, minnows or even crayfish definitely did not make me squeamish. I even used to hold the worms in my mouth to keep them moist, that was until I accidentally swallowed one.
