Never Slip Bait Tape Technique for Application to Soft Baits on Jigs

‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape comes in multiple strips on a release card with purchase options of various widths and lengths. ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape is packaged between a thin clear release film on top and a more rigid colored release card underneath.

Use of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape requires removal from the clear release film and the colored release card.

- Remove ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape from the semi-rigid release card by: folding/bending release card parallel to ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape length peeling edge and continuing until ‘Never Slip’ Bait tape with clear release film separate from release card. (In most cases clear release film delaminates or partially delaminates from ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape upon separation from release card).

- Continue removal of clear release film ensuring surfaces of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape does not come into self-contact.  (‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape will fuse together when in self-contact). Clear release film has static charge and may remain on finger/s. It is best to remove clear release film from finger/s by placing in pocket or inserting in re-sealable ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape packaging.  Maintain litter free procedures.

- In isolated cases when clear release film remains fully in contact with ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape after separation from release card: stretch/elongate a section of either end of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape until clear release film delaminates or partially delaminates. Continue removal of clear release film ensuring surfaces of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape does not come into self-contact.

- Position one end of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape on pre-rigged soft bait/ jig immediately after jig head. Maintain adequate contact between finger/s and soft bait allowing elongation of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape to be wrapped around outer diameter of soft bait. (Soft bait must exhibit compression and reduction of soft bait diameter under ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape.)  Angler will self-determine optimal elongation of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape from 100% to 300% elongation. Use of full length of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape enhances longevity and maintenance of soft bait position.

- Continue wrapping with elongation and tension over underlying layer of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape with limited mis-matched alignment until ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape is used fully. (If mis-alignment occurs – fold underlying mis-aligned edge onto upper length continuing to wrap over mis-aligned section.)

- Tag end of ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape must remain elongated and under tension with an ironing action of finger/s for fusing end to underlying length.  After multiple casts and retrieves a short section of the tag end of the ‘Never Slip’ Bait Tape may delaminate if not adequately secured with elongation and ironing action.  The short tag end may be trimmed off if desired.
