Evergreen International Bow Worm

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.
