VMC Swinging Rugby Jig Straight Shank

Featuring an articulating head design, the VMC Swinging Rugby Jig Straight Shank offers anglers an entirely new way to fish their favorite soft plastic creatures and craws. The original version of the Swinging Rugby Jig Head is still extremely popular, however, some anglers sought another option for close quarters pitching or crawling through thicker cover. The straight shank option deliver more bite than the offset model, but otherwise works essentially the same. One of the most popular techniques to emerge in the world of bass fishing has been the "pivot head" style jigs first introduced by Gene Larew with their Biffle Hard Head. Since their initial release, the technique has grown immensely and other companies have followed suit. While we always support an original product, choice is important to bass fishermen and even the slightest difference in details can mean more effective fishing - which is why we carry a number of pivot head jigs including the VMC Swinging Rugby Jig Straight Shank.

Part of the Ike Approved series of VMC hooks, each product with this designation were designed with the help of 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion Mike Iaconelli. The Rugby Jig Straight Shank is constructed using the original fixed position Rugby Jig, a uniquely shaped shakey head jig which is ideal for flipping or pitching around cover. The jig's head is actually a cross between a round ball head and football head. The shape is most accurately compared to the shape of a rugby ball, hence its name, it is one of the most versatile jig heads for bass fishing applications. Now, with the modification of the head connection, this shape becomes even more significant as it helps guide the attached plastic through all the likely hiding places of big bass. VMC incorporated bait holder spikes with the straight shank version in order to keep the attached soft plastic in place.

We offer the VMC Swinging Rugby Jig Straight Shank in two sizes: 1/2 - 3/0 HD Hook & 3/4oz - 3/0 HD Hook . Available in black, brown and green pumpkin colors. Quantity: 2pk.
