Found a way to keep plastics in place on jigs

The one thing I hated using soft plastics on jigs was having to constantly pushing them back up after four or five fish. About 15 years ago I came up with this: a wire that wraps once around the eye tie post, cut close to it on one side and then the other bent to form an L which swings into the plastic keeping it up on the hook no matter how many fish caught.

My pleasure. It also works with skirted jig trailers.

What it looks like :

....but not before putting the lure on the hook first:

Black pork leech I get - frog - no. Do bass even eat leeches ? Earthworms are not part of their usual diet, but similar to my dogs loving carrots, they eat them anyway.
