This is a very popular pike rig and great alternative to using jig head and stingers. It is really great for shallow water in summer when the pike come in to warm up and chase bait. The rear hook reduces those tail nips pike often like to give that get you all excited but seldom result in fish.

Watch yourself guys and girls (Health and Safety and disclaimer),
I know there are few younger people eager to make lures so I would like to point out I do this for fun but there is risk of injury from the methods I use.
I wear glasses when messing with wire because bits of it can fly off when cutting with snips and do some real damage to your eyes. Also wire and spinning things is not a great combination I used a cordless drill to wind up the wire as it is slow and also cut the wire into short lengths. If you are going to try this DO NOT TRY THIS WITH AN ELECTRIC DRILL. Lastly you can buy all the bits I made like the corkscrew and pins but that is not as fun or as risky.
Tools and Material
124lb American fishing wire a great alternative to this is .6 -0 .8mm s/steel mig welding wire
Jewellry Pliers, these can be bought on e-bay or amazon for about £4-£10 often called round to concave jewellery pliers
Roll pins, I bought a selection box of these from ebay via China cost about £10, Basically the barrel wraps should fit snuggly inside the roll pin and tag of the wire should pass through the slot, so whichever size suits your wire. With the selection box and heavier wires you can make very large corkscrews for much bigger baits.
Cordless drill, the reason for using a cordless drill is it can be slowed down, DO NOT TRY THIS WITH AN ELECTRIC DRILL.
For the stinger wire I normally 7 strand coated stainless steel between 20-30lb and crimps that will allow me to pass the the wire through three times snuggly .
The crimping pliers are Savage Gear but most lure companies do something similar.
There are other methods for making these screws and I have included a couple of links below to other videos from MEL Lures and Mikko’s version from Solarbaits
