I don't think the Maggots in general are as big as the ones one could get in say the 70's.
 
The really big ones were called gozzers (Bluebottle Larvae) 
 
Maybe the Bluebottles used these days aren't as big & as well fed as they were due to commercial issues.
Some Tackle shops used to breed their own back in the day & not use commercial maggot farm sources.as is the order of the day - today!!

Perhaps mine came from a strain of model bluebottles lol or perhaps my supplier kept his in the fridge to long so they lost weight.
I got some huge ones off a pig skull one time and a nasty septic cut for my efforts

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste
