Or any heavier line if you want, but i just want to ask, what would be a good general knot for tying 80lb line to a hook, swivel sinker etc?04/11/2008 at 5:30 am #11571HookLineSinkerParticipant
Uni knot all the way for every thing04/11/2008 at 5:43 am #11572MiliwolfParticipant
I use the Snell knot for the hook connection, then to the swivel I use a Clinch knot. I also often use crimps.04/11/2008 at 6:16 am #11574yellowfinParticipant
I find that some lines will work well with one knot better then another .
Suffix zippy snells well and works great with a uni knot but I cant get a clinch knot to work well for me….
Try out the various suggestions of snell/uni/clich etc and see what works best for the line you have .
Lots of different ones in there to try out.04/11/2008 at 6:31 am #11577
Cheers guys, got the 80lb leader from the warehouse! ryoshi, though it snapped out of the case and got tangles, spen about 2 hours untangling it all for the sake of $10 of line.05/11/2008 at 3:59 am #11589
cheers guys i tested and found the snell is great for attaching the hook, and uni knot is good for swivels.23/12/2008 at 2:23 am #11969yellowfinParticipant
80lb is easy enough to tie simple knots etc in, but once you get to the heavier line you’re probably better off with crimps.
