Evergreen International Bow Worm

                                               


Evergreen International of Japan has begun to export its Bow Worm to American anglers. And one veteran Midwest finesse angler suggested that we should post a brief gear-guide blog about the four- and six-inch Bow Worm, including a few words about how Japanese finesse anglers employ them.

The Bow Worm possesses a bulky torso that is encircled with a series of opposite-facing ribs and topped with a spear-shaped tail. It is, also, endowed with a long egg sack. According to the folks at Evergreen International, the Bow Worm was designed to vibrate more and displace more water than other soft-plastic worms.


One of the favorite ways that Japanese anglers wield the four- and six-inch Bow Worm is on a neko rig. To assemble a neko rig, anglers insert a nail style-weight into the head of the worm and affix a small, short-shank hook in the middle of the worm's torso. Some anglers utilize hooks as small as a No. 2 Nogales Mosquito hook.


Neko is the Japanese word for cat. Japanese finesse anglers say the neko rig traverses the bottom of a lake the way a cat often uses its paw to scratch the ground or a litter box, and these anglers regulate how it moves by using nail style-weights that range in size from 1/96 of an ounce to 1/16 of an ounce.

It is manufactured in 10 colors: Amber-R/ER; Bluegill; Cinnamon-BL/SL; Cola; Green Pumpkin; Green Pumpkin-BK; June Bug/Brown Craw; Muddy Craw; Sweetfish; and White/Clear-SL.

A package of 15 four-inch Bow Worms and 10 six-inch Bow Worms retails for $11.99.
