THE WORM WEED GUARD


THE WORM WEED GUARD

I am going to tell you about a hook kink that has served me well in my search for the speckled beauties. I have tried it out in the waters of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Wisconsin, and it has always done excellent work.

The stunt is nothing more or less than placing an ordinary angle worm on the hook, so as to make the hook practically weedless. It works so well that in small brush streams where the current is not too swift I do not use a sinker at all, but just let my ‘patent” worm guard hook float with the current right into the holes under the bank, in the brush and among the logs and snags. You can bet it gets right in where the trout live.

If I do not get a bite I do not pull my hook back too rapidly when I retrieve, but pull It out gently and seldom get snagged. When using large worms one is enough on a hook. Start the hook about one and one-half inches back from the head of the worm and run it toward the tail, as shown in Fig 1. Then run the point of the hook right into the center of the head, well past the barb, as shown in Fig. 2 and you have a weed guard that will work in the tightest place, if you do not jerk too hard. Fig. 3 shows how the same trick may be worked with two smaller worms.
