The Kyoto Rig is a punch-shot setup that’s both effective and adaptable, building on a style originally used by Japanese anglers that gives you the weight you need without interfering with hook-set, all while letting hook and bait move freely and naturally above the bottom no matter how heavy your line.
Substitute the Kyoto Rig for a swinging jig: the wire leader lets you change weights without retying, allowing you to adjust quickly based on local conditions. The rig can be paired with all kinds of plastics and fished in a variety of terrains, whether you're dragging the bait or targeting bass under hydrilla mats or in other thick vegetation. The natural movement of your bait will draw in even selective predators.
