Slide on weight, tie on hook

The first step is to slide a bullet weight onto the line. You have the option to slide a peg onto the line first before the bullet weight so that you can pin the weight to the worm to keep it compact and together for pitching and flipping into thicker cover. But if you are casting the worm, leave the peg off so the worm is free to move around more. For thicker cover, use a heaver weight, and in more open water,  stick with the lightest weight you can and still feel what the worm and rig are doing on the bottom. Also a lighter weight will help it come “over” cover better like shallow grass or brush piles under the surface and not get bogged down as much.
