im using a 2 hook rig top hook clips up and bottom hook clips down, i thread my lug along the hook starting with its head then the hook comes out the lug near its tail, i use a pendulum cast. i find the tails on both lug come of as i cast, between 1 and 5 meters in front of me in mid flight and iv treid adjusting the power of my casts but no luck also iv tried different worm sizes but the same heppens.

i wouldnt worry about it mate i either nip the tails off when i bait up or they come off on the cast. the juicy bit is the body if you still have this on your hook then theres not a problem

alright, il live without tails. might try a needle are they good or not because i have no problem threading them on a hook so would it be pointles buying 1?
Id compare that question too someone who doesnt need a walking stick buying one.

If you dont need it then why buy one.

I have too use one as im cack handed and dont stand a chance without a needle...:roll1::roll1:

2 be honest with u i can thead a bait on the hook ok but i also use a needle sometimes it puts a worm on the hook perfectly for bait presintation but i think it's ur personal choice

I use a bait needle all the time now, find it quicker and easier for big baits or small hooks. Being kack handed it also gives me better presentation, especially if I am threading three big lugworm up a pennel rig. But as the man said above, it is all down to personal preference - I just find them a very useful piece of kit.

Never had much of a problem with any lug blowing up in the cast, and I can give it a fair old whack. I pretty much always have it clipped down on an impact lead using a fixed paternoster rig and about a 15" snood.
