When it comes to fishing hardbaits like topwater plugs I am pretty concious of keeping good sharp hooks on my lures, especially during a tournament. Stock treble hooks on alot of lures are low quality and replacements are $2-3 each. Not happy with what was available, I decided I needed to find a better way. Last year I started tying my own feathered trebles using some pretty crude tying methods, they worked pretty good for me so I bit the bullet and invested in some fly tying tools. The right tools for the job made it so much easier and improved quality. In just a few hours I put together a variety of trebles in different color patterns, size profiles and different levels of flash. Can hardly wait til spring to watch the fish destroy my creations.

I would think that tail weight would change the angle in the water of a topwater (tail weight) and give it more movement walkin' the dog etc.. could eve use double split rings to move that tail back more giving it more action and a better hookset as long as the weight doesn't get too high. (just my theory)
