Ideal where a slow sinking hook bait is required, eg. when fish are taking on the drop. If fishing over bottom debris or weed, a popped up or critically balanced hook bait can be achieved, by matching with an appropriate size hook.
Also useful where small fish are a nuisance, constantly tearing real maggots of the hook. Our imitation maggots work best when used with real maggots either as loose feed or in PVA bags.
Insert the hook as shown in fig 1, and slide around the bend to the position shown in fig 2. This leaves the hook bend clear to take real maggots, and does not interfere with hook penetration.
