How to tie a Maggot KD Rig

STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS:

  1. Thread a small piece of foam at a slanted angle.
  2. Thread the foam on to a supple braid hooklength, I recommend Korda Super Natural
  3. Tie on a small match hook and pull into the foam, i use a barbed size 16 match hook. The barb helps it stay put in the foam. With the small hook pulled into the foam thread on a Curve shank  hook and pull it down until the bottom of the foam just touches the curve of the hook.
  4. Wrap the hooklength around the shank twice trapping the hair.
  5. Raise the hair and then wrap 5 times underneath and then push the hooklength back threw the eye making sure to go towards the hook point and pull tight.
  6. Now pull the small hook out of the foam and thread on a bunch of maggots then pull the hook back into the foam making sure the point is well buried and kept in place.
  7. Place the rig into a solid bag and fill with maggots and boilie crumb.
