Floating jig head with a weedless guard is ideal for use with small floating worms of the insect type. By installing a floating jig head, control performance, castability, and buoyancy can be improved.
The basic concept is a balance setting based on the weight of the hook, based on a fly popper as a basic base. The perfect balance of the floating jig head design is achieved.
Increase buoyancy with head made of hard foam material
Uses a hard foam material with excellent buoyancy. Insect-type worms with weak buoyancy can also be lifted. If a worm with buoyancy is used for the material itself, it will float horizontally. On the other hand, a worm made of a general material that does not have buoyancy tends to fall down due to the weight of the hook. Before use, it is a good idea to check the floating posture when setting the worm you plan to use.
Indicator spot to improve visibility
Insect-type floating worms with small size cannot be easily located if they are cast long or under the overhang. Naturally, this will overlook the fish strikes and affect the lure operability.
The indicator spot is painted on the Hoptera floating jig head to enhance visibility. This makes it easy to confirm the position even when using natural colors. In addition, the indicator spot is located on the water surface and cannot be seen from the fish.
Minimum required single brush guard
I installed a brush guard within the range that does not inhibit hooking. Since the lure weight itself is light, it can still dodge obstacles. When using with completely open water, you can safely remove the brush guard.
Due to the characteristics of the hard foam material, applying a heavy load to the jig head body may cause breakage or peeling of the hook. Please use the pliers etc. to directly grasp the hook part when working from the mouth of the fish or removing the root.
The surface of the main body is coated for worm material, but if there is a scratch, the worm material may erode from there. It is recommended to remove the worm after use.
