To avoid accidental loss Enterprise Tackle recommend side hooking using a size 10 or 12 wide gape hook in conjunction with a longish hair. Use the counterweight shot pinched on to the hair loop as a hair stop, pulled into the recess. Using this method should the hook pull free from the bait whilst playing a fish, the bait remains attached to the hair and is not lost. It does throw up an excess loop of hair on top of the bait, but this does not impede hooking. The baits can of course if preferred also be side hooked in the normal fashion, with the hook link tied to the eye of the hook.The counterweight can be removed by squeezing the biscuit and replaced with the plug provided if a hair rig presentation is required.
