The tie-on point on this clever vertical lure is a split-ring that slides along a wire rail. This lets the ring slip to the front for easy casting and a fast sink rate, then slip back again so the lure is positioned for vertical jigging. While designed mostly for vertical presentations, the bait can also be ripped back. Featuring a feathered tail hook, the two-inch, half-ounce Rail Shad comes in six finishes. I’m betting this will be the first of many lures with such line-tie systems.
