Funny, I just built a couple of these the other night, copying the Owner concept. Now I actually will have confidence to try it, since reading this. I believe Owner calls it a Jig Rig.

Ever heard of the Neko rig? Shhhhh!

Is that splitting the tail of the senko? Nope never heard of it! Just guessing, actually.

Take the idea of a nail weight but tie some flashbeaue to the weight or use a brass nail. Insert in the end of a Senko and you have a "palm" the niko effect with some great action!

For a neko on the cheap, I use a tiko nail instead of those expensive neko weights. The fish don't care how much you spent. I also use an o-ring and the Gamakatsu weedless wacky hook. You only lose about a buck when you break off. Good news, you seldom break off!

Similar (I spelled it wrong) Flashabou is familiar to fly guys. You could use skirt material or embroidery thread or whatever. Doesn't have to be a Senko either but you know that.

Doesn't have to be directly tied to the nail/weight either. You could use a wire and run a line down the center of the worm and pull the skirt stuff into the lite end and tie THAT to the nail/weight. Then you end up with an "anemone" effect.

IF you are lazy you could cut the end off a small "hula" style grub and crazy glue it to the end of a senko or any worm where the sizes can match up. Fast n easy. You can do it on the water. Wink

Caught my first fish on this rig, a nice 3 lb LMB. I found some bass casting weights with swivels already on them. They were a great price on Ebay. I put a 1/0 skip gap hook on it. Just baited a Zoom Trick Worm. Nice thump! Plan on using this more!

Been using this setup for awhile now at the local city lakes. Been using the owners rig n jig hooks which are a little overpriced(8bucks for 2 hooks) but worth every dollar. Wink
