Sea Angler (UK) - - SEA SCHOOL -

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.
