Catching Fresh Bait

As Anglers, we are constantly attempting to build a better Mouse Trap.  Each year, manufacturers around the world create new lures and fishermen conjure innovative techniques and presentations to elicit a reaction from their targeted species of choice.  However, no lure, technique color or scent will ever compete with the real thing.  Live/Fresh Bait will out produce day in and day out.  Hence, the creation of the “Sabiki” Rig.  This simple setup of small, colorful “flies” tied to a mainline with a lead dropper at the end, came in to being in the 1960’s and gained popularity in the 70’s when a Japanese company, Hayabusa, began manufacturing and promoting the setup.  Now, you would be hard pressed to find an angler worldwide, Freshwater or Salt, who has not used a “Sabiki” rig in some form or fashion!  Why?  …Because Fresh Bait, is the BEST Bait!
