    The only way I can see to replace a treble hook with a single hook on the rear of a jig, other than using an assist hook, is to attach a split ring to the jig, then a swivel to the split ring, then another split ring to the opposite end of the swivel, then the hook to that split ring. Some jigs come packaged with a direct swivel/hook combination but I have yet to see any swivel/hooks like that on any of the fishing tackle websites. Any other ideas?

    You can just use a splitring and single hook... that is for a Diamond jig.. most folks use assist hooks at the top of a Knlfe/ Butterfly jig.

    For assist hooks you need a slit ring and solid ring.. The split ring is attached to the bait then the soild ring is attached to the split ring and the assit hook is attached to the solid ring where you also tie on your shock leader.

    The less links between the hook and bait the less chance for failure.

    Here's a close up of the split and solid ring with a leader attached.. note the swivel is on the leader... where you attach your main line.

    Use open eyed hooks like Gamatatsu Siwash hook.

    What is the strength of the mono/fluoro and what knot/how many turns are you tying it with? Thanks.
