I was given a old (I don't know how old, but packaging seems to tell me it's old) set of 'Flying Lures.' Sort of a skinny tube type lure with legs etc and a weighted jig that fits inside the body. I've rigged them up and caught Pike with them, and hoping when the small mouth come shallow, to catch them also..

my question though is.. does anyone know how to rig them so is 'swims' 'Hook Up' rather than down? I'd rather not set hooks into the soft part of the fish's mouth(the bottom), and I dont' want to tow sticks back to the boat or shore every 3rd cast.

Those things work great for bass.. Heres how they work. If you look at the bait there is 2 holes on one side of them. The hooks have 2 little hook things on one side of them also. Those little hooks things fit into those holes so when you put the hook into the tube the hook is sticking out of the tentacle side and the eye of the hook pokes out of the hole in the nose of the bait. There should be a picture on the box. If you don't use the hooks that come with them, they are just another tube bait.

1. HOW TO RIG THE FLYING LURE

The Flying Lure is rigged opposite to conventional lures. The hook point of the Flying Lure faces the tail and not the nose. Pay special attention to the rigging the first time. Later on, it will become second nature.

1. Insert the hook eye into hole A near the nose of the lure and push the hook eye toward the rear.

2. Push the hook eye through the rear opening, C. Tie to line.

3. Bring the clip (or metal spur) through hole B. The lure should look like this when completely rigged. You are ready to fish.

4. To make the lure weedless, take the center tail strand of the lure and impale it on the hook tip. THAT'S IT! If you wish, you cab take the other end of the strand and impale it on the clip (metal spur). The soft weed guard you have just made will deflect debris in the water, yet will allow you to sink the hook in a fish’s jaw when set the hook. If excess plastic protrudes to the left or right of the lure, it will make the lure turn in the same direction- like a rudder.

2. ADJUSTING YOUR FLYING LURES

To give the lures extra side-to-side swimming action as it glides down, bend the hook shank slightly in the middle. Creative swimming action can be obtained by varying the bend on the hook shank. Have fun experimenting.

3. TAKE CARE OF YOUR FLYING LURES

Important: ALWAYS KEEP YOUR PLASTIC FLYING LURE BODIES FLAT AND STRAIGHT. FLAT AND STRAIGHT BODIES WILL ASSURE A PERFECT SWIMMING ACTION EVERY TIME. BODIES THAT HAVE BEEN STORED IMPROPERLY (E.G. FOLDED OVER, BENT TAIL STRANDS AND SO FORTH) WILL NOT OPERATE PROPERLY. FLYING LURES ARE PRECISELY BALANCED TOOLS UNLIKE OTHER SOFT PLASTIC LURES. TAKE CARE OF YOUR FLYING LURES, AND THEY’LL CATCH FISH FOR YOU.

If a Flying Lure has been improperly stored, straighten it out and store it properly. Most mishandled lures will fix themselves when stored properly for a few days.

KEEP DIFFERENT LURE COLORS SEPARATED. Soft plastic colors will “bleed” into one another. This is normal for this type of soft plastic material. Avoid problems by storing similar colors together.

that makes more sense than the way I rigged it.. I had it rigged like you would a tube...

Lok them up online. They have a lot of different bodies now. I'm thinking about gettting some more. I've lost almost all of the ones I've started with.
