The reintroduction of the temporarily
banned umbrella rig in New York B.A.S.S. Nation competition
has created a bit of a stir in recent weeks. Whether
you are for or against the use of this lure, you owe
it to yourself to be properly informed and this is
a good time and a good place to cover this territory.
Let me get one thing out of the way from the beginning.
Before you jump to any conclusions, let me state that
I am completely neutral when it comes to the use of
umbrella rigs in bass fishing competitions. It does
not bother me either way if they are allowed or not.
There... Now haters can hate the rig and not the messenger.
