Tie worm hook on to leader of 12 to 48 inches. Insert
hook in worm in same manner as Texas
Rig. Tie a swivel on end of leader.
Slip a 1/2 to 1 oz. bullet weight on end of line
(tapered end facing rod). This weight can be lead (if legal in
your state), steel or brass (as shown). Then slip on a glass
bead (made for this purpose with hole in center). Tie end of
line to other side of swivel.
The glass bead has two purposes. First it clacks
against the weight and makes noise. This can be an attractor
to bass. Second, it acts as a insulator and protects the knot
from the constant banging and contact of the heavy weight. Many
bass aglers prefer the steel or brass weight over the lead because
they create more noise.
