Hi,
i am about to purchase an inchiku jig and i am wondering what colour would be best to start off with. i go fishing in the firth of thames if that helps. also do they need to be replaced often?
thanks

Hi Travis, inchiku's are great at this time of the yearespecially, orange is always a great start, but blue, pink are also very popular. Depending on depth you fish, i would always go a bit heavier so you know that you get to the bottom

As Kaveman says they are good colours, if i had to choose i would go pink or orange. I would also take some Kaveman's slider also as they work a treat out in the gulf

The actual jig i use many times until the paint flakes off badly. I use new hooksets everytime I fish, they are pretty cheap

Hooksets need to be replaced whenever they become blunt or skirts become tatty, all depends on quality of hooksets and how many fish you catch on a single hookset tbh. Nothing to catch 20 good fish on a single hookset
My hooksets are only $5 per pkt for a 2 pack so cheap compared to others and mine are custom made.
I can keep prices reasonable because there are no middle men involved that add 100% per transaction

Most skirts to inchiku jigs go through a centre hole in the jig, just a matter of taking off the solid ring at end of the hookset, poking new cord through hole and fitting solid ring back on with 1/2 hitch
