The ‘hitch-hiker’ style of hook is becoming more popular among lure anglers, especially when using soft lures with a circular face – for example Wave Worm Bamboo 5″.
Currently we stock VMC’s with this style of fixing.
They are incredibly easy and simple to rig.
Take the point of the spiral and place it in the middle of the face at the head of the lure. Now slowly begin to screw it in, ensuring it is straight. You don’t need to force it, just take your time and the screw will find it’s own path in.
Then when you are just past the last spiral – stop.
All that is left to do, as with any other style of weed less hook, is mark the hook placement and insert the hook point through the lure and out the back.
