I rig them with a very light jig head 1/32 is plenty and use the smallest version of the bugs you can.
There are copies of the bugs about that work just as well.Even a unweighted jig head will be great.
Standard way of rigging up hook through top of bug.
Try them out Dan can vouch for them also he has used them more than I have.

Pity they have dropped the Avacodo color from their range and replaced it with a more translucent Wasabi color, the avacado used to be a killer for Bream and Estuary Perch, for me the Bloodworm is the killer.

Bugs are great fished unwieghted and with a continuous winding motion and a high rod.
Bream love em on a evening or a cloudy day.
Just wait for the wave , pause and as old rexy would say yibida yibida

Yes mate they work great with the right conditions. Use a aberdeen or a resin head though. The resin head works fine and we all have a few floating around in our jighead box
