Tying assist cord for jigging – ‘Pirates’ style

Method 5 – ‘Pirates’ Style: My fifth video for tying assist cord for jigs,using two hooks and a squid skirt

A method for rigging up replacement assist cord rigs for inchiku jigs (also known as pirates and a few other names). This technique is also good for metal ‘speed jigs’ if you tie the legs a little shorter.

You can use solid or hollow core assist cord for this method and the hooks can be attached using the knot of your choice. A few other knot options will be covered in one of my upcoming videos.
