I’d take the colour of the water into account because when there’s a brown tinge to the water, bronze maggots work really well for roach, dace and chub especially on waggler or stick float tactics.

My favourite all-round colour is the red maggot, and that’s because I think that they look like a bloodworm, which is the natural diet of many fish.

It’s also worth using a fluorescent pink maggot as a change bait, as again, the colour really stands out.
