The first and most common is when a fish simply sucks the worms into its mouth as it takes in water and expels it through the gills in this case more often than not the fish will be deep hooked in the back of its throat.
Then there is the take when a fish merely picks the worms up in the front of its mouth just with the intention of moving them away from its lye.
In both cases you will feel the fish moving off with the worm and all you need to do is tighten up on it to set the hook,in the case of the second take there will be times when you fail to connect or even play the fish only for it to throw the hook half way through the fight, but that is why it is called fishing not catching !
Finally there is what I call the snatch take not so common in my experience a fish may be watching your worms unbeknown to you but in you action of winding in the line or trying to move your worms you will induce the fish to grab the worms this can come as quite a surprise if you are lucky the fish will hook its self if not you are just left with another fishing moment to talk about
