Gear alert: ‘O’ rings

Bass anglers who fish plastic worms “wacky’’ style can save their baits and a lot of hassle by stocking their tackle boxes with small rubber “O’’ rings, which can be readily purchased in hardware stores. Buy various sizes (all small) that fit different-sized plastic worms. Slip the ring to the middle of the bait, and hook your hook to the ring, not the bait, saving the latter for use time and again.
