Default Real simple question about tying in

Hey guys, what's the preferred method of tying into lures? Do you use a snap swivel on your leader or tie right to the lure?

Thanks

Marc

Small Spro swivel, 36"+ leader material, modified Duolock snap.

Do a search, this has been covered often and in detail

I know, I know. I'm a little retarded when it comes to searches. I can never find what I'm looking for.
Thanks for putting up with me guys ;)

I use a variation on the Homer Rhodes knot.
http://www.noreast.com/knots/knotspage3.cfm

It's only good for about 50% line strength though (or so they say).
Ties easy in a rush, easily undone to change lure if heavy leader is used, Nice with cold fingers.

Generally use 17# running line w/ 50# leader so the 50% knot strength still gives a safe 25# connection. My leaders are for abrasions only anyways.

Thanks Floats.
Very similar to the rapala knot. Look for all knots here Jake.

Just noticed that is drawn wrong too!
As shown the bitter end comes thru forming a overhand on the top of the lower knot with the bitter end pointed towards the lure (less weeding).
I usually clip the heavy leader on a pointy angle to help retying. Leaving a loop, it does not detract from any action at all.
