on some of my HB's i have removed the front treble and used the skirt to semi cover the tail treble the skirt works pretty well avoiding build up of crap sorry weed on ya lures the tubes from Gary are also good when cut in half to do the same thing...trial and error really you may find a better way
oops forgot cut the skirt in the middle makes 2 skirts for HB's

Hi Nathan, I have used Yamamoto softies in many types for a few years and found them awesome, the suppleness is miles ahead of many brands, and the SALT!!!!!! try rolling one between your fingers with a little pressure, the c - rystals just ooze out jawdrop (lil tip here, Freshwater fish just LOVE salt, because they aren't swimming in it, they have to make it from their food)

The Jig Skirts are able to be used in many ways, as a hook trailer as described by mully, as a 'pusher' ahead of a standard grub, or (big tip here, just put them on a suitable jighead as they are, and use them to imitate a crayfish. We had brilliant results on Bream and Bass, using a similar body made by Gene Larew, for Bream we use the smaller Spider Grub which has 1 skirt and a curl tail, for the Bass (or BIG Bream) we used the Double Tail Skirted grub which has 1 skirt and a double tail the other end. These variations could be made using your Jig Skirts.

Just a warning, try using the superglue sparingly, it may not work at all. If it doesn't try using a lighter and a knife to melt the peices back together.

Good Luck tinkering thumbsupsmilie

silicone works well if your patient and allows you to remove a damaged skirt..I agree with you fisha garys lures both soft and hard are underestimated i love both..
