Riot Baits' Urami Worm

Riot Baits' Urami Worm

Urami- GreenPumpkin

Matt Stark of Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, who is the proprietor of Riot Baits, says the Urami Worm resembles a sword with a flexible whip-like blade, which was created in the southern region of ancient India more than 2,100 years ago. Urumi is the name of that sword, which is spelled differently than Riot Baits spells it.

The head of this six-inch worm is small and bullet shaped. Its torso is encircled with 23 prominent ribs, which some anglers describe as rings. The circumference of the torso becomes smaller as it stretches from its head to its tail. Its tail possesses a shape that replicates a horseshoe arch from Moorish times in medieval Spain, which is more pronounced than the arch that constitutes the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.

Stark says the buoyant nature of the Urami Worm and the configuration of its tail allows it to exhibit a unique coiling, rippling and ribbon-like action that no other soft-plastic worm can duplicate.


Midwest finesse anglers will affix it to a small mushroom-style jig with an exposed hook, but Stark says most anglers will rig it Texas-style on a shaky-head jig or a slip-sinker rig. Finesse anglers can also affix it to a split-shot rig or Mojo rig. Most Midwest finesse anglers will also customize it by shortening it an inch or more.


It is available in the following colors: Blue Steel, Green Pumpkin, Kewl Kiwi, Kush, Riot, Slayer, Smashing Pumpkin, and Tidal Blue.

The price for a package of 15 Urami Worms ranges from $4.59 to $4.99.
