VMC Swinging Rugby Jig

Featuring an articulating head design, the VMC Swinging Rugby Jig offers anglers an entirely new way to fish their favorite soft plastic creatures and craws. 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.

VMC Swinging Rugby Jigs

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 Swinging Rugby Jig is constructed using the original fixed position Rugby Jig, a uniquely shaped shakey head jig which is ideal for soft plastic worms, creature baits and Senkos. 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. You can fish it over rocks or gravel, through weeds, around boat docks - anywhere you can think to throw it. 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 an extra-long z-bend hook for this swinging jig head in order to keep the attached soft plastic rigged more securely and increase hookup ratio immensely.

When deciding what bait to attach, we suggest something with its own, inherent action. We really like a creature bait with swimming appendages such as the Strike King Rage baits or the Zoom Speed Craw among many others. A nice tail kicking action will go a long way when slowly retrieving this bait across rock and other such obstructions.

We offer the VMC Swinging Rugby Jig in five sizes: 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 1/2 & 3/4oz. Available in black, brown and green pumpkin colors.

5 of 5 Stick your neck out! February 19, 2016
Reviewer: Rusty from Austin, Texas  
This jig has a long neck, extra wide gap hook. This neck holds and will not tear soft plastics. The wide gap can accommodate any creature, magnum worm, or long swimbait. This football jig is different, but thats what makes it so special!
