European Nightcrawlers

The Worm Guy offers the finest European Nightcrawlers also known as Eisenia hortensis, leaf worms or trout worms.. European Nightcrawlers are a fishermens choice when it comes to live fishing worms as many anglers have not had the oportunity to try nor even see an African nightcrawler, which from my own personal fishing experiences, makes a much better all around fishing worm.They perform alright as a compost worm, however are not as prized for composting as the Red Wiggler Worm or African Nightcraler for castinsg. European nightcralers run approximately 3 inches long and can get as thick as a pencil.
