A Gummie Process
First I pick a painted head and wrap a thread base from the head about 1/4"down the shank.

Then I select the plastic I'll use (I prefer Crappie Thunder's because they have bulk & are fairly tuff but about any solid body plastic will do) and cut the tail off.

Thread the body onto the hook and apply a tiny drop of super glue to the thread base and push the plastic against the jighead.

Clamp hook in vise and with forceps, push body towards the jighead and clamp it.

Wrap a thread base to the hook bend and tie in flash (I use 1 strand, doubled twice making 4 strands).

Pull & stack hackle barbules for tail and tie in, tie 2 half-hitches and cut thread.

Apply a tiny drop of super glue to thread just below clamp.

Remove clamp and pinch & twist body to push plastic over thread/glue. Cut flash to desired length

Nicely done. Cool

For bass, I believe that I could try this with a Yamamoto Fat Ika or a Kinami Palm Tree with "some form" of tail material other than soft plastic. Maybe even using a curly-tailed grub for that matter.
