i need a link to a site with a good step by step on how to tie the snell knot, thanks for the help
go to the BOC Forum Library (upper yellow tool-bar, on the left), thats where i found an easier way to snell a hook!
here you go
here's a link to animated knots.
I've always used snap swivel leaders since I was a kid(what my dad taught me) now I hear this is not the best thing to do. what is the advantages to snellin your hooks?
A super strong knot, and a direct line of pull with the hook. Get rid of the snap swivels, not very dependable.
That seems to be what everyone says. I guess this time my dad was wrong. That never happens Ha Ha. Will powerpro line work well for a leader snelled to my hook.
I'm still old school using mono. Really can't answer that one.
heres a good site but idk if it has snells
Go with a mono leader. Unless you want to resnell everytime you catch a fish. Cats teeth are real rough on braid.
Try this one.
Kevin I would use a different leader material than the power-pro. It will weaken with every nick or scrape. Use a mono or coated braid. I run 80lb power pro but use 80lb fusion as a leader. With that I can run my fingers over it and tell instantly if I need to re-tie. 80lb mono is just too stiff for my liking.
Skip, what kind of coated braid do you use?
I use Spiderwire fusion, some guys don't like it as a main line but I used it for 4 yrs and never had a problem. Now I use the rest of the spools as my leaders. You can still find it as saltwater fusion. The one i had was catfish fusion, its the same line.
