The A Rig has gotten me to tinkering with wire again and this is one of the things I came up with. My method of fishing is for the most part, a slow presentation keeping my lure close to or near the bottom bumping it or the structure down there as often as possible. I like to scratch the back of every piece of structure down there. Natuarally, I get hung up a lot. Always in the back of my mind when I build something new is this question. Is it going to hang/snag on everything it touches? I know that no lure is completley snag proof but with a little forethought on design, the chances that it will snag can be reduced somewhat. So I formed this one so that the hooks will stay near verticle even though they can kick up and swing side to side. I did not want snap swivels on this lure because they allow the hooks to lay over on their side or even turn upside down as it contacts structure. However, I did want to be able to change out the lures that are attached to this bait.
