    Re: Sliding snell knots

    I used a knot tying tool to make the rigs for halibut fishingWith my son. With that you can adjust the space between the lead hook and the tail hook for the size of your bait.Be safe

    You are not the first guy who I heard liked to do that, floss has gotten stronger over the years too. It is fairly easy to cut but in that application many have used it in the past......Jetspray

    Re: Sliding snell knots

    I use braid for the snell on my sliding snell rigs. using the ink tube from a ballpoint pen makes it fast, easy and strong.

    Re: Sliding snell knots

    Mono or dacron for the slider, braid can get too tight

    Re: Sliding snell knots

    I use mono 15-20 lb and 40 lb leader (mono also).Last couple trips I have been tying up 6 Extras and I have been using snap swivels on them to quickly change out.Its another connection to fail but helps out in a hot bite to get fishing again.IDK about braid maybe Nayr has tried it?

    Sliding snell knots

    Ive always hard tied my double hook rigs for halibut. Im thinking of doing a sliding snell on the front hook instead. I get how to do it, but I see some people suggest braid for the line used to Snell the sliding Hook while others use mono. The leader will be 30 pound mono. What do you folks who use a front sliding snell use to snell onto the leader.

    My setup is 30lb mono with a 1/0 hook snelled in front and a 1/0 treble tied on the bottom with a palomar knot.
    Its better to be fishing and thinking about God then to be in church thinking about fishing.
