How to rig Soft plastic and Jig head


Step 1

Lay the jig hook along the soft plastic tail so that the top of the tail sits flush with the jig head.


Step 2

Make a mark or find a feature on the lure tail where the point of the jig hook should emerge after being pushed through. Precision here is vital.


Step 3

  Push the hook point through the head of the plastic, making sure it is right in the centre.



  Step 4

  Carefully thread the hook point through the middle of the soft plastic until the point is exactly beneath your mark on the tail.








  Step 5 

  When you are confident that the hook point will emerge in the right spot, push it through the plastic and bring the hook through after it.





  Step 6 

  Push the plastic tail back down along the jig hook until the top of the plastic slips up over the securing barb andnestles nicely against the lead head. Provided you have completed all steps neatly and precisely, the lure tail should be sitting   straight and on centre, with no bunching up or distortion of any kind along its entire length.
