Step 1 - There are several commerciall available maggot clips that allow you to pop open a spiked metal point, thread maggots on and then close the clip again.

Strip back three to four inches of coating from a combi link like cortex and tie a small tear drop or oval rig ting to the end using a three turn grinner.
