The Ned rig is a great finesse fishing technique, but it excels in open water situations. What about when you want to fish a finesse technique like the Ned rig around vegetation and skip it around cover without getting hung up? Mike Iaconelli introduces a new finesse bass fishing technique developed by Dan Quinn and Kyle from Wired2Fish, the tiny child rig. This unique rigging technique will produce a similar seductive action, but allow you to get into places that the Ned rig and other exposed-hook finesse techniques won't allow you to fish effectively for bass. Join Mike Iaconelli on the water as he talks about the differences in these 2 rigs, the components of rigging the tiny child rig, what tackle you'll need, when to fish this rig, where to fish this rig and finally, Mike will show you how to fish it for maximum effectiveness.
