does anyone have any advice or tricks or the trade to replace torn up shad bodies on the hooks that are still attached to the leader and swivels that are from umbrella rigs??? I am tired of tearing up & ruining the new shad body in the process. The way I see it the only way to do this right is to have a supply of new ones made up in advance by the use of leader material, hook, sleeves, swivels and a crimping tool. Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.

I take the leftover rig and hook the barrel swivel at the end of the wire/mono leader to a rigging needle. I push the rigging needle through the back of the shad and aim for the mouth. pull everything through until the hook is buried to the bend
