Fiiish Black Minnow
Rated among the best soft plastics, are you using this innovative design?
THE FIIISH BLACK minnow is an innovative design, available in lengths from 70mm to 200mm to match the bait fish. There are also various jig head weights to suit the fishing depth and water conditions. It is one of our lure expert Henry Gilbey’s top five soft plastics (see page 94), and it has the backing of many leading lure anglers. Andy Steer’s diagram (right) shows how to rig a Black Minnow (here a 90mm version) with the jig head and hook. Fiiish uses a colour code system to allow you to match the correct components by correlating the same colour tag or number of the jig head with the hook and lure body of the same colour. Follow the simple nine stages to rigging up the Fiish Black Minnow, by first turning the jig head upside down and pushing the rigging system into the hole in the front of the lure body. Twist the jig head inside the lure body, turn ther hook upside down and put the eye over the rigging system wire. Now turn the hook over the rigging system, so it sits in the rigging system, before bringing the hook to the top of the lure, but with the point remaining in the top layer of the lure (weedless). Using a rig clip on your leader, attach the Black Minnow to the line.
