Just to add some information to this thread.
I tie a simple snell using this method rather than the uni snell because I've had that knot slip after several fish. I should have retied but I kept rebaiting because the bite was fast on bait and I was too lazy to retie.

There are two better ways to tie the snell knot.

***********************************************************
The first is tied this way. With both ends of the line available to pass through the eye.

First pass the tag end through the eye of the hook from the front of the hook. Only pass it through about half an inch.
Hold the shank of the hook and the half inch tag end and wrap the trace around both the shank of the hook and the tag end 7 or 8 turns.
Pass the trace back down through the eye of the hook from the back of the hook.
Pull the trace tight while holding the hook to set the snell.
There should be very little or no tag end protruding when the knot is set. Then pull tight you have a snelled hook that you can tie to a swivel with a uni knot.

************************************************************
A bit more practice is necessary for this the true snell as it can prove to be awkward in low light.

you missed (slept through) your flycasting lesson as jacob had his rod with him. i;m not much of a teacher but i kinda like wanted you to get some time on the 9ft rod. jake went home and came back. i brought my vise and material/ i can;t believe i didn;t have time to tie a fly or two. i really wanted to fish. i kept going over to the canal after hooking up with that bluefish. a knot tying loop was all i showed someone, shame it was my fault as i didn;t plan an allotted time for the slim beauty and whatnot

depends on what your fishing for? if it's bass then a uni is fine but if you think the yellow eyed devils or weakfish and perhaps fluke are about then i would crimp a 80# wire leader to the swivel. hope this helps. ps, bear in mind that the leader should be wire and not surfstrand coated junk. you can get .036 which could be sufficient but maybe a little thicker gauge/ the coated stuff will get tangled if it is too long.

Default Re: The three knots a beginner should know.

where are you fishing these? and what bait are you using. i suspect you are in NJ or more south. i fished them off piers some time ago for an evaluation of sorts. piers and bridges are better than off the beach as a light type bait is harder to walk out than say a head or chunk. with this application you can also use whole baits and if you can learn the sliding snood knot you can make rigs to hold them and just tie or crimp the rig onto the swivel. i went so far as to put a 1oz weight inside a head to walk it out faster and although i did not have an underwater camera for this i could not see the advantage or disadvantage. let me know if i can help further, zim
