Which side of eye is line supposed to come out of in order to make hook work properly?
Thats how i snell mine :wink:Rob, Here is a simple and "effective" snell method. Hold your hook in your left hand between your thumb and index finger (hook eye facing to your right) run your line through eye, about 2/3 the length of hook shank and then pinch the "tag" end w/ your thumb and index finger. Then take your right hand and make 7-8 wraps around the hook shank ( hold the colis tightly) then run the loose end back through the eye and pull tight. Great Knot. I also take a cigerette lighter and burn my tag end, this would help prevent it from pulling out.:wink:Very simple knot to tie and effective!
Outstanding; thanks.Personally I don't use circle hooks, but I ran across a 6 year study done on them vs J hooks. What I posted was the findings from this study about using different knots. Not sure if I can post the link on here but if anyone wants to read it pm me or just google circle fishing hooks( it's the second link on the list)
